James Taylor at Christmas is a Christmas album by singer/songwriter James Taylor, released by Columbia Records in 2006. It was his last release for Columbia since signing with them back in 1977.

The album is essentially a reissue (with a new title and slightly altered track listing) of James Taylor: A Christmas Album, a limited edition title distributed by Hallmark Cards in 2004. "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas", originally issued on Taylor's October Road in 2002, and "River" were not included on the original Hallmark release. Additionally, the original album featured a version of "Deck the Halls" which is not on the standard Columbia CD. (The Barnes & Noble chain has, however, issued a version of the new title with "Deck the Halls" included as a bonus track).

The album was reissued on the Here Comes the Sun" by Taylor and cellist Yo-Yo Ma, which originally appeared on Ma's 2008 holiday album Songs of Joy & Peace.
