Céline Dion chante Noël (meaning Céline Dion Sings Christmas) is a French-language Christmas album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released in Quebec, Canada on 4 December 1981.[1] It is her second French album and first Christmas release.

Content and commercial performance[edit]

The album was released three weeks after Dion's debut longplay and contained traditional Christmas carols. Although there were no singles issued to promote it, Céline Dion Chante Noël and La voix du bon Dieu had sold 30,000 copies in 1981 and they'd go on to sell about 125,000 copies the following year.[2]

Tracks "Glory Alleluia", "Promenade en traîneau" and "Joyeux Noël" also appeared on Dion's second Christmas album, Chants et contes de Noël (1983). In 1993, Dion recorded an English version of "Joyeux Noël" with its original English lyrics for David Foster's The Christmas Album. This recording of "The Christmas Song" appeared later on her 1998 album, These Are Special Times. Dion also recorded a new version of "Petit Papa Noël" with Alvin and the Chipmunks in 1994, for their album A Very Merry Chipmunk.
