Home For Christmas is Daryl Hall & John Oates' first full length album of Christmas music. It was released in the USA on October 3, 2006. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of this album goes to Toys for Tots. It was only available at Trans World Entertainment music stores in 2006, but has since become available at all retail outlets.
Previously, the duo released a promotional only single called "Jingle Bell Rock" in the early 1980s that had each of them separately singing the lead vocals on either side of the 45. The version of "Jingle Bell Rock" on this album is different from those 2 versions.
