The album was their seventh studio album to be released one month after "All Summer Long". It contains the hit single "Little Saint Nick". The first 5 songs were their own compositions while the rest are traditionals. In 1977 they planned to release a second christmas album titled "Merry Christmas from the Beach Boys" but the record company refused to release this one. Some of the tracks of that second christmas album can be heared on the CD compilation "Christmas With The Beach Boys" (2004) that has the original 1964 christmas album with outtakes and later recorded christmas songs.

Merry Christmas Darling - single cover
In 1978 the Carpenters released their christmas album titled "A Christmas Portrait" including the hit single ""Merry Christmas Darling" which is their own christmas song. A second christmas album "An Old-Fashioned Christmas" was released in 1984 as a posthumous album. That one contains outtakes from 1978 but is less interesting.
