Classic holiday carols get updated with Haberdashery's signature style. A beautifully haunting a cappella version of "Carol Of The Bells", a percussive rendition of "Little Drummer Boy", and a touching arrangement of "O Holy Night" comprise the original release, followed in 2010 by the addition of "Silent Night" in English and German. In 2011, the Christmas EP was updated with a new version of "The First Noel", and "O Come O Come Emmanuel" was added in 2012.
