Album facts: The Beatles' Third Christmas Record

On December 17th 1965, The Beatles released their third Christmas fan club record. At the end of every year the Beatles recorded Christmas greetings and well wishes for members of The Beatles' Fan Club. 

The album consists of The Beatles thanking their fans for all the gifts they've sent; John at one point thanks fans for sending him chewed up bubblegum and playing cards made of knickers.  

There is also an off-key rendition of Yesterday, along with poetry and impromptu singing.
