"From beginning to end, this Christmas album is a winner! The opening title track is a beautiful portrait of what you would imagine Christmas at the Mandrell house to be!Next, it goes into her terrific rendition of "Winter Wonderland", complete with sleigh bells! Then on the seldom covered "This Time Of The Year", this song is perfectly suited for Barbara!The next track, "Santa Bring My Baby Home" is home territory for Barbara - straight ahead blues! She nails it perfectly!"One Night A Year" is another music genre Barbara is very at home with - gospel music! She emotes a lot of passion in this wonderful gem!In my opinion, her version of "I'll Be Home For Christmas" is the best out there!"It Must Have Been The Mistletoe (Our First Christmas)" is probably Barbara's most well-known Christmas song due to an abundance of play on radio and in shopping malls during the holiday season. She truly made this track her very own.On "From Our House To Yours", she is joined by sisters, Louise and Irlene, on harmony vocals to deliver a sweet, Hallmark moment to Mandrell fans everywhere!The next track is, for me, the centerpiece of the entire album. "Born To Die" is beautiful lyrically, melodically and in Barbara's warm delivery! It should remind us of the true meaning of the holiday season.The closing track is a 7:28 medley of Christmas carols telling of the birth of Christ via songs "O Little Town Of Bethlehem", "Away In A Manger", "What Child Is This", "The First Noel", "We Three Kings", "O Come All Ye Faithful", "Hark The Herald Angels Sing", "Silent Night" and "O Holy Night". Barbara did this magnificent medley in one take - probably not an easy task given all the lush arrangements and the power vocals she produces on some of these hymns.All in all, if you don't have this in your collection, you are truly missing out on one of the best Christmas collections by any artist ever!"

"I have had this cassette since I was 14 years old. That's almost ten years ago. I wore it out and had to buy the CD. "Santa Bring My Baby Home"is my favorite. This is a christmas album that never gets old. I will have it around for my son to listen to when he gets older!"
