AllMusic Review by

Jo Stafford's Happy Holidays is one of the better Christmas albums to play during the holidays. Her beautiful croon fits these selections perfectly, as they are almost all more up-tempo, jazz influenced numbers from the last century. Her voice is especially good on the slower numbers, more specifically on "Christmas Song," "Nearness of You," and "By the Fireside." It is here that her voice takes over the song, bringing out the melancholy and power of the songs easily. Any fans of jazzy vocal music should give this a chance; it really is quite good and showcases a fine talent that has a gift for singing Christmas music.
