AllMusic Review by

Christmas albums and compilations live in their own little season, with a marketing window of perhaps only a couple of months, but if done right, they're perennials, and since holiday and Christmas songs are, in essence, instant nostalgia, the best of them stand outside of time, reappearing each holiday season, tireless and timeless and beloved. Although fairly typical, this 15-song set is a mixed bag, with a little bit of everything, from Burl Ives' "A Holly Jolly Christmas" to George Strait's "Santa's on His Way," all of which keeps the sequence sounding fresh.
