Feliz Navidad is a Christmas album by singer/songwriter José Feliciano. Originally titled José Feliciano and released in 1970 by RCA Victor, it was reissued on CD in 2001 by BMG Heritage with all the songs of the original album (Christmas classics and Feliciano's famous composition "Feliz Navidad") plus three original songs added and recorded by José but never released on the original vinyl album ("Las Posadas", "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town" and "O Come All Ye Faithful").

Each year at Christmas time, this CD is on the BMG music catalog, and the song "Feliz Navidad" has become one of the most downloaded and aired Christmas songs in the USA, awarded by ASCAP as one of the top 25 Christmas songs most played and recorded around the world.
