Chants et contes de Noël (meaning Christmas Songs and Tales) is a French Christmas album by Canadian singer Celine Dion, released in Quebec, Canada on 3 December 1983.[1] It is her fifth French album and second Christmas album.

Content[edit]

Chants et contes de Noël includes three songs ("Promenade en traîneau", "Joyeux Noël" and "Glory Alleluia") from Dion's first Christmas release Céline Dion chante Noël (1981). The album was promoted by "Un enfant", originally by Jacques Brel.[2] "Un enfant" is also featured in Dion's 1984 compilation, Les plus grands succès de Céline Dion.

The album includes also "À quatre pas d'ici", an adaptation of Bucks Fizz's UK number-one hit "The Land of Make Believe" and a B-side of "Un enfant" single. Authors of that song wrote for Dion hits like "Think Twice" and "Call the Man" many years later.
