Christmas Is 4 Ever is a 2006 Christmas-themed album by Parliament-Funkadelic bassist Bootsy Collins. The album was released in the U.S. by the Shout Factory label and by P-Vine Records in Japan. The album represents the very first Christmas album made by any member of the P-Funk musical collective. The album features re-workings of Christmas standards such as Silent Night, Merry Christmas Baby and Sleigh Ride, as well as original compositions such as "Happy Holidaze".

Collins stated: "I’ve wanted to do a Christmas album forever, but I never really got the chance or the time to really think about doing it and putting the effort in it."[3]
