Let's be honest: There aren't many good Christmas album covers. Sometimes too sentimental, occasionally trying too hard to be cute or funny, almost always corny, holiday record sleeves aren't making anyone's "greatest covers" lists.

For some folks, that's welcome news. They are the collectors of bad album covers and I proudly count myself among their numbers. Most of the albums in this gallery are from my personal collection, though I admittedly had to lean on the internet for a couple of particularly tasty sleeves that still elude me in real life.

We hope that you enjoy, and that you have a great holiday. When you're done browsing, come on back and enjoy some Polyphonic Spree. You earned it.
