8 Days of Christmas is the fourth and penultimate studio album, and the first and only album, by Destiny's Child, released on October 30, by Columbia Records.

The album contains 12 tracks featuring traditional Christmas songs and three original songs. Most of them are re-arranged with up-tempo beats in a contemporary R&B style. The album was recorded in Summer 2001 in the United States, but Kelly Rowland stated during the "8 Days of Christmas" video premiere on BET's 106 & Park in Fall 2001 that parts of the album were also recorded in Japan during Destiny's Child's overseas promo tour. In the same interview, Beyoncé revealed, "Actually we wrote the song two years ago, when we went in the studio to do some Christmas something. That's what started the idea of doing a Christmas album."

The title track first appeared on the double-disc reissue of the group's second studio album, The Writing's on the Wall in November 2000. Upon its release, 8 Days of Christmas made its debut on the Billboard 200 at #59 - peaking at #34 a couple of months later on the chart dated December 22, 2001 - and received generally mixed to positive reviews from critics.

On July 2, 2020, the album was certified by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) denoting shipments of 1,000,000 copies.
