Best Christmas and Holiday Season Albums of All Time

The Top Ten
1 Heavenly Christmas - Jackie Evancho

What can you say about a voice, a song, and a singer like Jackie Evancho when nothing you can say quite captures the pure elegance you are experiencing? Every time Jackie sings, another level of incredible presents itself. Thank you, Jackie.

You will think this is the voice of an angel from heaven, but it's just the voice of the newest and best singer the world has ever known.

Jackie's voice is achingly beautiful.

2 Wrapped in Red - Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson manages to merge Christmas and pop and put it all into one album. It's a cool album.

3 Buon Natale - Il Volo

I listen to this CD any time of the year. It's very easy on the ears and emotionally uplifting. Il Volo is fresh and awesome in their style and renditions of traditional music from around the world. They sing in different regional languages, which is an outstanding bonus for many cultures. Even the angels blush when these young gentlemen sing! The Buon Natale CD is worth more than its weight in gold!

They make beautiful music together, and this Christmas album is no exception. Their voices are classically trained, which shows with every note they sing. This Christmas album has something for everyone and is enjoyable for young and old. There are no better singers on the planet than Il Volo.

4 Merry Christmas II You - Mariah Carey
5 Merry Christmas - Mariah Carey

How is she behind Justin Bieber? All Christmas albums come and go, but Mariah Carey's charts on iTunes every single year so far. It is definitely the most popular album and should be at least in the Top 10.

It easily surpasses everyone on this list. All I Want for Christmas Is You (AIWFCIY) was ranked 12th on Billboard's Hot 100 last year, over 20 years after its release, and it consistently tops the Billboard holiday charts. The album itself features holiday classics and original songs, including AIWFCIY.

6 When Christmas Comes Around… - Kelly Clarkson
7 Elvis' Christmas Album - Elvis Presley
8 A Christmas Cornucopia - Annie Lennox
9 One Wish: The Holiday Album - Whitney Houston

The greatest singer of all time. Even in her later years, Whitney still had The Voice. Love this album, the best holiday album of all time!

10 These are Special Times - Celine Dion

The greatest holiday album ever. Celine showcased a unique vocal talent, as always. All the songs were powerful. No one can beat her manner of singing! She's the Queen!

The Contenders
11 December Baby - JoJo
12 O Holy Night - Jackie Evancho

Don't miss the video of her Queen Latifah appearance.

Nobody sings it like Jackie. She feels it!

13 Awakening - Jackie Evancho

Only the special edition contains the second disc of Christmas songs.

Disc 2 contains some real Christmas gems.

14 Someday at Christmas - Jackie Evancho

This album contains many songs from the Awakening Special Edition Christmas CD, along with tracks Jackie recorded on other artists' albums (e.g., Placido Domingo, Peter Hollens, and Vittorio Grigolo) and the title track, a new recording for 2016.

Her new release for the 2016 Christmas season.

15 Snowflakes - Toni Braxton
16 Kylie Christmas - Kylie Minogue
17 Christmas Songs - Diana Krall
18 Noel - Josh Groban

This is the one Christmas album I need to listen to every year at Christmas. The music and singing are gorgeous, and it really gets you in the mood for the holidays.

This album is the perfect soundtrack to any Christmas.

19 My Kind of Christmas - Christina Aguilera

This album went unnoticed, which is disappointing because it deserved more attention and praise. Christina is undoubtedly an extremely talented vocalist, and she's been in the music industry for much longer than most of today's biggest stars. I highly recommend this album to everyone reading this. You're seriously missing out if you don't purchase it.

20 Tinsel and Lights - Tracey Thorn
21 Christmas Eve and Other Stories - Trans-Siberian Orchestra

The best without a doubt. It combines metal with Christmas music perfectly.

22 A Traditional Christmas - Joe Nichols
23 All I Want for Christmas is a Real Good Tan - Kenny Chesney
24 The Season for Romance - Lee Ann Womack
25 My Christmas - Placido Domingo

A beautiful new release for the Christmas 2015 season, with many great duets included!
