Christmas, a collection of Christmas songs, is the third studio album by American recording artist Kimberley Locke. The album was only released digitally.

Background[edit]

After Locke saw her first holiday single, "Up On the House Top", sit at the top of Billboard magazine's Adult Contemporary chart for 4 weeks in 2005, a full holiday album was planned for release during the 2006 holiday season. With the delay of her second studio album Based on a True Story, the label decided to delay plans on the holiday album as well until the 2007 season. Instead, only "Jingle Bells" was released as a single, which again brought Locke's name to the top of the Billboard AC chart.

Along with the release of the album, a third holiday single, "Frosty the Snowman", was sent to radio, and once again brought Locke's name to the top of the AC chart. The album's final single, "We Need a Little Christmas", failed to make the impression the other single had, peaking at number 19.

The album sold 3,000 copies as of December 31, 2008.[1]
