The 20 Greatest Christmas Songs is a compilation & remix album released in 1986. For this release Frank Farian recorded 6 new Christmas songs with Liz Mitchell & Reggie Tisboe, in 1984, for a new Christmas album. However this album was only released in South Africa as New Christmas With Boney M.

Frank also added to the album all the tracks from the 1981 release Christmas Album, except for Winter Fairy Tale & I'll be Home For Christmas. Some of these tracks were remixed, and on the Christmas Medley instead of Liz Mitchell singing the first verse of Silent Night in English, the backing singers Amy & Elaine Goff sang the verse in German. The tracks from this album has been re-released on CD as 3 different releases - The Most Beautiful Christmas Songs Of The World in 1992, Christmas Party in 1998 & 2003 & A Wonderful Christmas Time in 1998.
