Vince Guaraldi Trio, "My Little Drum"

Oh yeah, Christmas music baby! This is from A Charlie Brown Christmas, a perennial favorite. What makes it such a lasting record is that it's not insulting to its listeners. It doesn't lean on treacle or anything to get the point across, and so you don't get tired of hearing it.

Vince Guaraldi Trio, "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing"

Even when it's going super traditional, it just turns in a lovely rendition of the song and doesn't drag it out or anything. It's pleasant!

Vince Guaraldi Trio, "Linus and Lucy"

And when there are originals, they go HARD. This got stuck in my head from the first time I heard it, and I'm not sure it's ever entirely left.

Vince Guaraldi Trio, "Christmas Time Is Here (Instrumental)"

Oh, did I mention that I just shuffled this record for today?

Vince Guarladi Trio, "Christmas is Coming (alternate take 1)"

Because I did. I'm allowed to mail it in every now and again. I hope those of you who celebrate have a great holiday, and those of you who don't have a great day nonetheless.
