Merry Christmas ... Have a Nice Life is the sixth studio album and first holiday album released by Cyndi Lauper. It combines original compositions by Lauper and collaborator Jan Pulsford with traditional Christmas songs. Reportedly much of the vocal was recorded in Lauper's cedar closet as it had a reverb that she liked. "Feels Like Christmas" previously appeared on Lauper's 1993 album Hat Full of Stars. The album has sold 26,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
