Christmas with the Virginia Glee Club is a 2009 compact disc recording by the Virginia Glee Club. One of three recordings released in the summer and fall of 2009, representing Glee Club's first CD releases in seven years, the disc was conducted by Frank Albinder and contains live concert highlights from Christmas concerts performed during the the Glee Club 2004-2005, 2005-2006, 2006-2007, and 2007-2008 seasons.

The CD cover reproduces the customary poster art for the Christmas concerts; the image of the Christmas wreath has been used to advertise Glee Club Christmas concerts since at least the 1980s.
