All I Really Want for Christmas is the third Christmas album by Steven Curtis Chapman, released on September 27, 2005. The album includes traditional holiday favorites such as "Go Tell It on the Mountain" and "Silver Bells", as well as some of Chapman's own Christmas songs, some of which had appeared on his previous Christmas albums.[2]

Chapman's adopted daughter, Shaohannah, appears with her father on the album cover. On the first track, she reads the passage of the Nativity of Jesus (Luke 2:7-14) with the music of "The Night Before Christmas" (track 13) in the background.[citation needed]
