[edit] Background

Songs for Christmas is a box set of the first five albums in the annual Songs for Christmas series, all of the albums that had been recorded up to that point. Originally intended only as a Christmas gift for Sufjan's friends and family, as his popularity grew, downloads of the album began appearing on the internet. Sufjan eventually decided that he should release these albums to the general public, which he did, in the form of this box set. It was also promoted with an Asthmatic Kitty webpage.
