This is the perfect Christmas album. My father had the LP in the 1970's, and every year it was dusted off. There are a number of nauseous moments, such as the narration, but everything else is beautiful. From the opening croon of 'There's no place like home for the holidays', to the incredibly moving 'O Holy night', this is the only CD you need for christmas. Light the fire, mull the wine, remember loved ones gone, and wipe away a nostalgic tear.

I remember buying the vinyl with my parents from Woolworths in the 70s, and it still comes out every year. Nice to see the original albumart with the CD. This is simply the best Christmas recording and accompanies key traditions like icing the Christmas cake.

This arrived far too late for Christmas, but that's fine as it was to replace an old vinyl version - I love the the crackles add to the atmosphere, but it's starting to skip.
For the last 32 years (at least) this album has serenaded my family - first my parents and I, now my stepchildren and I - as we unwrap presents. It's a joyous series of carols and spoken Nativity stories - totally wholesome, totally Perry Como!
Like a warm hug from a favourite granddad!

I first aquired this as a vinyl 45 back in the 70's, my children always demanded this music sung by Perry Como as their favourite christmas music. So it was a delight to find it on a CD. Beautifull music, wonderful singer, what more could one want at christmas

We have the original record of this, although it's name has changed slightly, this is it in CD form, my dad always played it on Christmas Day when wee were kids, he's absolutely delighted.

I have loved this album since my mum used to play it when I was a child. This really is a quality Christmas album. The item arrived well packaged but I can't give the service five stars as it took over three weeks to arrive. Having said that, I have given four stars as the company did Email me to say there would be a delay. Fortunately, the CD is a Christmas present and we're only in October. I would probably be less impressed if I had ordered it later and it didn't arrive in time for Christmas.
