Give Love on Christmas DayNov 27, 2001
By Bruce Aguilar
Originally released October 15, 1970 this cd still sounds fresh and alive. The brothers' bantering (though forced and stiff) before a few of the songs and playfullness throughout give a sense of family and togetherness that I love. Sure they aren't always in top singing form, but I forgive them 'cause I love them so much. Also the high energy and delight they have singing songs like "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Calus" and "santa Claus is Coming to Town" is infectious and washes away any blemishes. "Give Love on Christmas Day" is perhaps one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs as it perfectly sums up the what the holiday is all about - love.
For true J5 (or Michael) fans or those who want a fun, energitic family themed Christmas cd, you can't go wrong with the Jackson 5 Christmas Album.

Truly a classicJan 23, 2000
By Ryan Barner
This is one of the best Christmas albums I know. It's interesting that the boys were able to put so much into the songs and they were Jehovah's Witnesses at the time (most of them still are). Their version of "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" is truly enjoyable. "Give Love On Christmas Day" never has and never will sound more perfect than it does on this album with Michael's mature voice providing the lead. Of course, no one can forget the most popular cut on the album, "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town." Michael's high and shrill voice makes it the most distinctive version of this song ever. For those that love Christmas music, the Jackson 5, or both, you MUST have this album. It will truly make your holiday a lot more special.

J5 Christmas Album reviewDec 08, 1999
My older brother purchased this album in 1970 and I have not listened to it in 25 years. When I saw that amazon.com carried the CD, I jumped on it. This is a great album for children of the 1960's and for children of the 1990's. If your a Jackson 5 fan and you love Christmas, this is a must for your collection.

A Must Buy If You Love Spirit Of Christmas!Jul 07, 2001
I love the whole theme of Christmas; the air seems different, the sounds, the walks around your neighborhood to visit friends and family is more fun. The atmosphere around christmas just rocks and the first thing that goes into my cd player the day after Thanksgiving when the Christmas holiday begins is this disc! It just captures the holiday like I remember, running around the house in footie pj's and looking to see if you could catch your parent's wrapping a gift or two. The music is outstanding! The arrangements are built around Michael's voice allowing the notes and soul in his vocals to ring loud and clear and it is most evident in "The Little Drummer Boy". He pours his heart and soul into it as does the rest of the clan. The disc goes from Holiday cheer to social commentary "Someday At Christmas" is such a well crafted and well sung ditty about the state of war on the human psyche, that you will find yourself humming it for days-odd as it may seem! The best track on the disc is "Give Love On Christmas Day" It allows all the funk and flavor of the Motown sound to rattle you until the chorus swells into a grand production that you just can't help but learn the lyrics and sing along! Truly the best Christmas album ever made!

BORN TO BE A SUPERSTAR!Oct 07, 2005
All of the brothers were talented, but Michael was definitely the superstar! If the song, Give love on Christmas Day, doesn't impress you, you know nothing about music! He was only about 10 years old! Have you ever heard another 10-year-old with such an incredible voice? Hell no! This whole album is great, the price is such a bargain too!
