Liner notes from album:
 
Christmas is a time for magic, and part of that magic is music.  With this
album you'll discover a pleasant interlude of listening enchantment, with
great songs of Christmas that add pleasure with every hearing.  For this 17th
Goodyear album, Perry Como sings The Christmas Song
ó and makes it uniquely
his own. And alternating with Perry on both sides of the album is Eugene
Ormandy, conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra and Chorus.  There are sixteen
selections in stereo, with holiday favorites mingled with many cherished
traditional carols.  It's music for listening, for contemplation;  music for
exploring the memories of childhood, or the mysteries of a silent and holy
night.  Best of all, it's music that ends on a happy note that lets us say
once again, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
