It's a brief set at ten songs, and it's made mostly of interpretations, including material that is both secular and spiritual. It's not a given that the disc will become part of each listener's annual holiday listening tradition, but it's all pleasant and enjoyable, and there are several moments where it is obvious that LaBelle is giving everything she has, rather than coasting through (a common issue with Christmas albums).

It's too well-made to be suitable only for once-a-year rotation.
