The True Meaning Of Christmas

In 1965 Peanuts creator Charles Schulz fought with his show producers at CBS to keep a one-minute reference to Christ in the animated special, A Charlie Brown Christmas. The producers argued highlighting religion in the special could limit the audience reach. Schulz didn’t budge and the show has become a seasonal favourite across the globe. The accompanying music by American composer Vince Guaraldi was released by Fantasy Records in the same year and has gone on to sell millions of copies and has been voted into the Grammy Hall of Fame and added to the Library of Congress's National Recording Registry list of "culturally, historically, or aesthetically important" sound recordings.
