 タイトルの【Night Before Christmas】とはクリスマス・イヴのこと。このアルバムがリリースされた2006年はレーベルにとって発足30周年に当たるため、大々的にツアーを行いました。ツアー名は【A Winter's Solstice Concert】で、2019年現在も毎年続行されています。

  このアルバムも30周年前夜祭という意味も含めたアルバムタイトルなのでしょう。レーベルの看板アーティストたちが、1年に1度の会合を楽しむかのように、クリスマスキャロルを持ち合って同窓会を繰り広げているように聞こえます。このシリーズを持って、ウィンダム・ヒルからは新録音のアルバムは制作されていません。
