This album never fails to bring a smile to my face. I was given a copy on vinyl as a child and have loved it ever since. The songs include Christmas classics which are sung well, with The Muppets adding an extra level, and tracks I have never heard anywhere else. My favourites are admittedly those which John Denver sings pretty much alone, A Baby Just Like You, When The River Meets The Sea and Medley: Alfie: The Christmas Tree/Carol For A Christmas Tree/It's In Every One Of Us, but I still chose the version of 12 Days of Christmas from this album over any other. The songs are also a great hit with my young niece and nephew, who at 1 and 4 would listen to it on repeat if allowed.

The following tracks are particular favourites mostly because of the presentation, the asides and John Denver's narratives:
1. Twelve Days of Christmas (Amusing quip at Miss Piggy's expense)
4. Christmas Is Coming (Miss Piggy having fun)
8. Little Saint Nick (Animal getting carried away)
12. Silent Night, Holy Night (beautiful with explanatory narrative)
13. We Wish You a Merry Christmas (Animal and all having fun)
They should sell the DVD of the original program each Christmas!

You think of many things when Christmas draws near, and if your anything like me, you will think of the Muppets. This cd is full of the spirit of Christmas with an extra helping of Muppet comedy for extra effect. With tracks like, "Christmas is Coming" and "Twelve days of Christmas" you just can`t go wrong. And although this is an imported disc, it works just fine on the cd players I use in England. If you like The Muppets and Like Christmas, what are you waiting for ? Buy it today !!

I started listening to this on vinyl when it first came out, and I remember watching the original Muppets special the year it first showed in the states. It will remain my favourite Christmas album of all time, and that's saying alot because I'm a Christmas fanatic!!
