Apparently it was his wife that encouraged Eric Clapton do to a Xmas album

Eric Clapton has just posted the EPK for his new hit Christmas album, Happy Xmas. In the EPK, Clapton describes the holidays in his house and explains how his wife suggested he record his own holiday set after years of slaving over Christmas mixes for each holiday season. The set, which is "Slowhand's" first foray into the holiday genre, scored him his first chart-topping Christmas album. The collection, which was released on October 12th, debuted at Number One on Billboard's Holiday Albums chart. Happy Xmas, which sold 6,000 units its first week, also entered the mainstream Billboard 200 albums chart at Number 168.
