Sounds of the Season: The Enya Collection is the fourth EP from the Irish singer, songwriter, and musician Enya, released on 28 November 2006 exclusively in the United States in Target stores by Rhino Custom Products and NBC Universal. The EP is a collection of six Christmas songs, four of which were included in the Special Christmas Edition of Enya's sixth studio album, Amarantine (2005). It was renamed Christmas Secrets EP for its four-track Canadian release by Warner Bros. and Warner Music Canada.

Enya accepted, and produced the EP in partnership with NBC. It was first announced on the official Enya message board on 10 October 2006. To promote it, Enya performed "The Magic of the Night" and "It's in the Rain" for the Christmas in Rockefeller television show on 29 November 2006.
