A New Thought for Christmas is a 2008 Christmas album (tenth overall studio release) by rock singer Melissa Etheridge, released on September 30, 2008.
All songs written by Melissa Etheridge, except where noted.
In the album's liner notes, Etheridge states that although she has never been a religious person, Christmas has always been one of her favorite times of year. She states that the album is her attempt "to bridge our old oppressive cultural ways with the enlightenment of our coming future." The album contains a mix of traditional Christmas songs and original compositions.
On October 26, 2009, Etheridge re-released A New Thought for Christmas as a deluxe package with a concert film DVD produced by Barry Summers from World Live Shows/Rock Fuel Media from the House Of Blues in Atlantic City. The Concert TV Special is broadcast throughout the month of December each year on HDNET/AXIS TV
