Webmaster's Note:  I consider this an Original LP and not an LP Compilation because it contains one new composition not included on any other Perry Como Christmas album of the past and another track which only appeared on a Motion Picture Soundtrack album.  An LP Compilation typically contains all previously-reissued tracks and no new material.

Tracklist:

I Wish It Could Be Christmas Forever (Perito / Matheson)
Toyland
Christ Is Born
The Christmas Song
Ave Maria (Schubert)
Here We Come A Caroling - We Wish You A Merry Christmas
Silver Bells
