We chose not to include the so-called ‘alternate edit’ of the 1964 Christmas message as it’s not really official. Bits were cut out of the take for use in the Abbey Road Video Show. They were reinserted in the wrong spot. Instead, we edited the take announcement, together with the slightly longer beginning and end on to the released version. We figure those who care enough to have the two different versions already have them.

You can find more versions of Christmas Time (Is Here Again) on our Magical Mystery Year Deluxe Edition.
