"Happy Holidays!", stylized as "happy holidays!" is the first Christmas album by Melanie Martinez to be released. It was released on November 22, 2018 as a surprise album.
Background & Conception
Melanie was originally scheduled to release a Christmas album in December of 2017, however she later scrapped it due to personal reasons. In March of 2018, she announced that some of the songs on Christmas Present would still be released, but they'd be rewritten, rerecorded, and have new titles. However, she never hinted that there would be another Christmas album coming later that year.

- This album does not have anything to do with the Cry Baby character nor does it have to do with the album.
- Tracks 3, 5, and 7 are tracks that were originally from Christmas Present, but after the original album scrapped, Melanie rerecorded and rewrote the songs, and then gave them slightly different titles.
- Tracks 9 and 10 have a transition, with the ending of track 9 starts the beginning of track 10, which when combined, they form a complete sentence.
- The title track is Melanie's favorite track on the album.
- She said in an interview that she's even more proud of this album than Christmas Present.
