Critical ReceptionEdit

Artvoice describes the album as a "joyous revelation, with Jessie displaying both her countrified command of the holiday repertoire and her ability to bring more intimate nuances to beloved classics ingrained in her own holiday memories, each song soaring as an illuminating renewal of the season".

Annie Reuter of One Country states that "the singer shows off her fashion sense with a series of costume changes while posing for a photo shoot" with Forrest Bradley Decker making an appearance.

Reuter goes on to say that "The pop-country track showcases Jessie’s soulful singing style with several powerful belts" and that "the singer’s laid-back personality and infectious spirit is highlighted."

According to people.com, the album is one of the "12 Celebrity Christmas Albums You'll Want to Play on Repeat This Holiday Season."

staccatofy.com also said: "On This Holiday is chalk-full of golden holiday nuggets. Kicking off with “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” it sets the tone for a celebratory sound. Decker is poised and resonates a confidence with crystalline pitch and shimmering phrasing. The tunes range from fun and flirty, “Santa Baby,” to a more serious tone on “Do You Hear What I Hear.” Decker’s voice is commanding with the ability to embellish her phrases with ornaments of inflection and soulfulness. Tunes like “Wonderful Day,” offering a traveling song vibe, with jangling guitars and an easy-going spirit. On This Holiday, is a delightful way to soundtrack the holiday, with just enough Country to keep it warm and just enough pop to keep it bright."
