My Kind of Christmas is a Christmas album and the third studio album by American pop singer Christina Aguilera, released in 2000 (see 2000 in music).
While "The Christmas Song" was recorded during her debut album sessions, all of the other songs from My Kind of Christmas were recorded while Aguilera was on tour in mid-late 2000. The album was recorded at the same time as Aguilera was recording her Spanish-language album Mi Reflejo—the albums were released one month apart. The album sold well, going platinum in the U.S. and selling over 3.5 million copies worldwide.
"Christmas Time" was shipped to radio in mid-November 2000 and served as the first (and only) single to be released off the album, though not receiving any video treatment.
Ironically the track "Merry Christmas, Baby" entered the Billboard Hot Ringtones at number thirty-eight in December 2007.
In addition, "Climb Every Mountain", originally performed by Julie Andrews in the movie "The Sound of Music, and which can be heard on her "My Reflection" DVD, was recorded for "My Kind of Christmas" but the song remained absent when the physical release became available. The song has yet to be leaked through the internet, or through any other available source.
