Christmas Music

The  song was written by Lee Mendelson and jazz musician and composer Vince Guaraldi for the 1965 A Charlie Brown Christmas television special. The soundtrack album for the special, which was released in December 1965, has earned triple platinum status.  The album contained two versions of the song; one was an instrumental, and the other had singers from the St. Paul’s Episcopal Church Choir in San Rafael, California. The song “Christmas Time is Here” became a Christmas standard. There have been covers by numerous artists, including Melissa Manchester, Sarah McLachlan, Mel Tormé, Toni Braxton, Chicago, Kenny Loggins, Tony Bennett, Al Jarreau, John Travolta & Olivia Newton John, Mariah Carey, and, oh, so many more.

Here are the lyrics to “Christmas Time is Here” by the Vince Guaraldi Trio:

“Christmas time is here
Happiness and cheer
Fun for all that children call
Their favorite time of the year

Snowflakes in the air
Carols everywhere
Olden times and ancient rhymes
Of love and dreams to share

Sleigh bells in the air
Beauty everywhere
Yuletide by the fireside
And joyful memories there

Christmas time is here
Families drawing near
Oh, that we could always see
Such spirit through the year”
