Christmas was always a big time for Beatles fans. The group released several of its albums during the holiday season, capitalizing on the holiday rush.
In the early 1960s, they also produced an annual Christmas show, a live package including music and skits and performances by other musical artists.
And, foremost, throughout the 1960s, the group released an annual Christmas record for members of its official Fan Club. These were not musical per se, but included chat, comedy skits and musical noodling around. These were not commercially released elsewhere. In 1970, after the band's breakup, the Fan Club compiled all the previous Christmas records - 1963-69 - and released them on a compilation LP, which also went only to members of the club.
Below are some Christmas images featuring the band.
