In December 2001, Sufjan Stevens set out to create a Christmas gift for his friends and family. The result was a 7-song recording that he called, Noel Vol. 1. Over each of the next few Christmas seasons, Sufjan would create new EPs to add to the collection.

As he was recording the Peace: Volume V (in the summer of 2006), he considered how best to 'officially' release this music into the world. He said he was, “determined to present the EPs in their original form flaws, blemishes, mistakes and all. A compilation would have been a cumbersome compromise. A “Greatest Hits” would have been heartbreaking (How to choose?).” In addition to the music, he wanted to add a 'lavish display of ornamentation' to coincide with the spirit of excess and overindulgence that is the hallmark of Christmas. Enclosed in the box you will find essays, a short story, song chords & lyrics, photos, a family portrait, and wishes for a Happy Christmas.
