A Very Special Season (also known as A Very Special Season: 14 Songs for Christmas) is a holiday album released by American pop singer Diana Ross in 1994.

Produced by Nick Martinelli, whom she worked with several times around the early nineties. It is lush, soulful pop that stands as one of her better holiday themed albums.

The set was only released for the international market and consists mostly of traditional Christmas standards as well as takes on more contemporary songs by Burt Bacharach, John Lennon, and Stevie Wonder. It was certified Gold in the U.K. and continued to sell well across European territories for several subsequent holiday seasons.
