AllMusic Review by

Irish vocal pop sextet Celtic Thunder (Damien McGinty, Keith Harkin, Ryan Kelly, Paul Byrom, George Donaldson, and Neil Byrne) traded in the slick, pop/rock covers of 2009’s Take Me Home for slick yuletide cheer on 2010’s cleverly titled Celtic Thunder Christmas. The collection is well stocked with warm, familiar holiday jams like “It's Beginning to Look a Lot like Christmas,” “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow,” “Winter Wonderland,” and “Silent Night,” along with a pair of Phil Coulter originals (“Our First Christmas Together” and “Christmas Morning Donegal”), and the Christmas truce ballad “Christmas 1915,” the latter of which appeared on 2008’s Act Two.
