It just isn’t Christmas in Fatopia until I hear Snoopy’s Christmas by The Royal Guardsmen. My dad has the album that is the whole Peanuts Christmas party, and I remember him playing it for us every Christmas when I was a kid. It marked the official start of the Christmas season in Fatopia back then. My brother and I used to laugh and giggle the whole time it played, and you could see in his eyes that Daddy really got a kick out of watching us listen to it.
He still has that album, but as you can imagine, the turntable he played it on played out many years ago. We have yet to find a way to transfer music from his extensive album collection to digital format, so I’m left to search places like YouTube to get my fix for many of the songs that bring back such warm and fuzzy memories. Thankfully, we have the internet!
And here is what I know as Snoopy’s Christmas (although it seems to have many names) by The Royal Guardsmen.
