Holiday Harmony is the fifteenth original studio album by American folk rock duo America, released by Rhino Records in 2002. Produced by Andrew Gold, it is a Christmas album. The album contains a number of traditional Christmas standards, some of which were recorded with distinct parallels to America's hits. For example, the "la-la-la" refrain in "Winter Wonderland" is strongly reminiscent of "A Horse With No Name," while "White Christmas" uses a guitar strumming style similar to that in "Tin Man." The album contains three new songs: "A Christmas To Remember," "Winter Holidays," and the "Ventura Highway"-themed "Christmas In California". "Winter Wonderland" became a minor hit during the Christmas season in 2002, reaching 26 on the Radio & Records Adult Contemporary chart.

In November 2010, the album was re-released on CD and digital download format as a "Collector's Edition." This edition contained a bonus track, "A Holly Jolly Christmas."
