AllMusic Review by

At 25 tracks, this set of modern era Christmas songs is certainly generous, in keeping with the season of hope and giving that it depicts. Ranging from rock-shaded pieces like Chuck Berry's "Run Rudolph Run" and the Beach Boys' "Little Saint Nick" to John Lennon's poignant "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" and Burl Ives' classic "A Holly Jolly Christmas," this volume in the Now Music series will put a little skip, hop and beat into your holiday spirit.
