Christmas Time Is Here

Album: A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
  • 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
    We'll be drawing near
    Oh, that we could always see
    Such spirit through the year

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

    Christmas time is here
    We'll be drawing near
    Oh, that we could always see
    Such spirit through the yearWriter/s: Lee Mendelson, Vince Guaraldi

  • Randy from Houghton Lake, MiI had just turned 10 years old when "A Charlie Brown Christmas" first aired. This song takes me right back to that time. It makes me feel nostalgic and a little melancholy because Christmas will never be like it was back then. I can listen to this, close my eyes and remember...
  • Camille from Toronto, OhJust a lovely, lilting tune. From one of my favorite albums of all time, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" by the Vince Guaraldi Trio. I play the CD in my car at Christmas time every year.
  • Bob from Cincinnati, OhRosemary Clooney sings it in the opening track of the compilation album "A Concord Jazz Christmas" (Volume 1). She sings it quite beautifully in the same key, at the same tempo and in the same tone as the original version. The album also features other fine 'n jazzy renditions of mostly traditional Christmas songs by various artists.
  • Aaron from Syracuse, NyThis song is slightly sampled in a cover of "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" by a band Copeland.
  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdMany artists have sung this song including Kenny Loggins and Diana Krall.
