A Charlie Brown Christmas is a staple of American culture during the holiday season.

Inspired by pianists like Bill Evans, Vince Guaraldi composed the soundtrack for this Christmas special and many tunes have become widely celebrated during the holiday season.

This one, “Skating,” features a complex passage using parallel thirds in the right hand of the piano part.
