The Christmas Attic is the second album by the Trans-Siberian Orchestra, a rock opera, and the second installment of their Christmas Trilogy. The cover art was created by Edgar Jerins.

The story is about a young child exploring the attic in an old house on Christmas Eve. The opening poetry sets up the story: 

In this room where shadows live
And ghost that fail learn time forgives
Welcome friends please stay a while
Our story starts with one small child
Who spend her nights in attics dark
Where dreams are stored like sleeping hearts

This album contains a mix of vocal and instrumental songs but as usual with TSO the story is the core of the album.

The track "Christmas Canon," one of the orchestra's most well-known songs, is a variation of Johann Pachelbel's famous Canon in D Major, with lyrics and new music added.

The album was performed live for the first time during the band's 2014 Winter Tour.
