Christmas with Sinatra & Friends is a 2009 compilation album by Frank Sinatra.

Eight Sinatra songs are taken from A Jolly Christmas from Frank Sinatra and 12 Songs of Christmas. The remaining four tracks feature Rosemary Clooney ("White Christmas"), Mel Tormé ("The Christmas Song [Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire]"), Tony Bennett and Bill Evans ("A Child Is Born"), and Ray Charles and Betty Carter ("Baby, It's Cold Outside"). Even though this compilation is relatively short, Christmas with Sinatra and Friends is a fairly solid collection of holiday music.
