Felicity's Holiday outfit.

Holiday Outfits are primary outfits associated with the Holiday Books or Holiday story for the Historical Characters.[1] This also includes outfits for the Best Friend Characters. In Holiday focused advertisements for characters, these are the outfits they are or were shown in, especially in catalogs.

Outfits for the Historical Characters were, until the 2004 book cover changes prior to the BeForever revamp, shown on the cover of the first versions of the Holiday Books. Many were part of the story in some way, generally with special meaning to the character.

Kaya does not have a holiday outfit, as American Girl wanted to accurately reflect the Nez Perce lifestyle.
