Favorite Yuletide Videos: “Snoopy’s Christmas,” The Royal Guardsmen

For the longest time, the only available copy we had of one of my father’s favorite Christmas songs was an audio cassette transfer of the Christmas special he recorded for his high school radio show, full of ambient static and the hisses and pops ubiquitous to record albums. Eventually, the Royal Guardsmen released a “Best Of” album and it included this holiday treat. Adulthood has brought the history of the original Christmas truce during WWI and it gives this song (however silly) a little extra weight.
