A Very Special Christmas is the first in a series of Christmas-themed compilation albums produced to benefit Special Olympics. The album was released in 1987, and production was overseen by Jimmy Iovine for A&M Records. A Very Special Christmas has also raised millions of dollars for the Special Olympics. The cover artwork was designed by Keith Haring.
- On later pressings of the album, "Back Door Santa" was replaced with "I Wish Every Day Could Be Like Christmas," also by Bon Jovi.
- Also on later pressings of the album, a spoken introduction on The Pretenders' "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas," presumably by a young child, was omitted.
