Christmas with The Chipmunks is a Christmas music album by Alvin and the Chipmunks, released in 1961, and contains 12 tracks. The tracks from this and its follow-up album, Christmas with The Chipmunks, Vol. 2 have been in continuous circulation since their original releases, however, at some point since the late 1980s Volume 2's cover has been given to Volume 1 and vice versa with the Volume number and track listing staying the same.. Both albums have been combined and reissued several times since their original release, making the songs the most well known in the Chipmunk canon. The most current version available is a 2012 re-release Chipmunks Christmas.
