  • This video was filmed before Hoop-Dee-Doo It's a Wiggly Party, but released after.
  • This is the last video for Wags' 3rd costume.
  • This is the last time The Wiggles use the plain black pants. From 2002 onwards, the pants have trim of the specificated color then on.
  • This is the first appearance of the Maton Guitar.
  • This is the third video to have prologues on all the songs, after Yummy Yummy in 1994 and It's a Wiggly Wiggly World! in 2000.
  • Decorate the Tree is very different from the album version, as it is about decorating Captain Feathersword as though he were a Christmas tree, rather than Captain decorating a tree himself.
  • Among the toys in Jimmy The Elf are a Big Red Car and Dorothy the Dinosaur.
  • In And the World Is One on a Christmas Morning, the Wiggles sing the song in studio, with clips of various children and other relatives of The Wiggles and their staff, including Greg's daughter, Madison Page, Murray's daughter Georgia Munro-Cook, son Hamish Munro-Cook, and mother Jean Cook, as well as many of Anthony's nieces and nephews.
  • Angels We Have Heard On High and the closing scene were likely filmed at the same time, due to all of the same people being in the same location.
  • Johann Sebastian Bach is mentioned in Wags Loves to Shake Shake.
  • The song title animations for this video are similar to the animations on Hoop-Dee-Doo It's a Wiggly Party.
  • The CGI animation for Jimmy The Elf is similar to the animation of Caveland.
  • This is the first holiday video released on DVD. 
  • This video aired on Playhouse Disney in December 2002, followed by Wiggly, Wiggly Christmas.
  • The Red Starry Guitar was originally going to be in the video along with the Red Takamine Guitar and the Black Takamine Guitar.
  • In the Song selection menu of the DVD this is the second time that the Red Starry Guitar is seen in the menu. The first time was Wiggly TV in the Sing Along with The Wiggles menu.
