Christmas is an EP by Pet Shop Boys, released on 14 December 2009.

The EP (which entered the UK Singles Chart at number 40) contains a new version of their exclusive 1997 fan club single "It Doesn't Often Snow at Christmas" and a new version of the track "All Over the World" from their tenth studio album Yes. "All Over the World"—originally intended as the second single from Yes—was released to radio stations as a promo and was given its first airing on Chris Evans' BBC Radio 2 show on 9 November 2009. "It Doesn't Often Snow at Christmas" followed 3 weeks later in the 1st week of December. The EP also includes a cover of Madness' song "My Girl", along with a remix of it, as well as a medley of the Pet Shop Boys classic "Domino Dancing" with Coldplay's popular single "Viva la Vida". The video for "All Over the World" was directed by Blue Leach and features live highlights from the Pandemonium tour. It was posted online a few days prior to the EP's release. The cover artwork continues the balloon motif from the Brazilian compilation Party.
