Have a Holly Jolly Christmas is a Christmas album by American folk singer Burl Ives, first released by Decca Records in October 1965 (Recorded in November 1964).
Ives had recorded two of the songs ("A Holly Jolly Christmas" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer") the previous year on the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer soundtrack. In both cases for this album, Ives re-recorded the tracks (he used a significantly different and slower arrangement for "A Holly Jolly Christmas;" of the two versions Ives recorded, the version on this album is the version more commonly heard on radio in modern times and also appeared on Regular Show episode White Elephant Gift Exchange where Muscle Man opens his present.).
