Happy Holidays Love, Barney (Happy Christmas Love, Barney in the UK) is an album that was released on CD and cassette on September 23, 1997, distributed under the music division of Lyrick Studios. It was later re-released in 2003 under Koch Records.[3]

On April 10, 2020, the album was transferred to Warner Music Group's Arts Music division, along with other Barney albums, as Mattel entered into an exclusive, multi-year global music licensing agreement between the company, announced on May 1, 2020.[4]

Happy Holidays Love, Barney is the sixth album released by the purple dinosaur and is the first holiday themed album in the franchise, but the second Christmas cassette, after "Waiting for Santa". The holiday album soon to come would be Feliz Navidad con Amor Barney.

The same year of the album's release, it commercially went on to peak at number two on Billboard's Top Kid's Albums on December 13, 1997.[5] On the same day, the album went on to be in Billboard's 200 peaking at #150, making it the third Barney album to hit the Billboard 200 chart.[6]
