A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles Schultz, an animated broadcast that
featured the music of the Vince Guaraldi Trio.
Until his death in July of 2021, drummer and Halifax native Jerry Granelli was the
last surviving member of that original trio.

Fun stuff. That's about the only piece of contemporary Christmas music that doesn't make my blood boil, and is surprisingly appropriate at any time of the year, like Handel's Messiah. Some things transcend.
Mercifully I've been spared Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer thus far; however, if I hear Santa Baby one more time this year I fear I'll go prompt critical and detonate on the spot.

Has someone found some old sheet music and slipped it into this year's selection unnoticed?
