AllMusic Review by

Although Rosemary Clooney recorded this Christmas material in the late '70s, it has all the bounce and cheer of her prime '50s recordings -- she doesn't have a big band backing her, and the electric bass is slightly out of place underneath Clooney's vocals, but she sounds virtually unchanged from 20 years past. Virtually the entire program consists of holiday standards (balanced between sacred and secular), except for a pair near the end -- the joyous "Suzy Snowflake" and a sentimental song, "Count Your Blessings."
