Featured Music By Vince Guaraldi

The soundtrack to "A Charlie Brown Christmas" is one of the biggest selling holiday albums of all time, yet the music Vince Guaraldi wrote for other beloved Peanuts holiday specials is sure to hold a special place in your heart as well. This includes the Thanksgiving Theme to "A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving", which can be found on the compilation, CHARLIE BROWN'S HOLIDAY HITS.

Hearing the melody brings to mind peaceful November afternoons, watching the special between the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and Thanksgiving dinner. Like other Peanuts holiday tunes, it can send you back in time to years past and remind you of all your yearly traditions. Let's hope it didn't consist of a feast with popcorn and pretzel sticks, like another round-headed kid I know.
