Pentatonix

Is it just us, or does Christmas music seem to seep into our lives earlier and earlier with every year?

Everyone loves a good holiday song, but now that Thanksgiving is behind us, snow has fallen, and December has officially begun it seems like just right time to start playing holiday tunes.

On the radio and inside stores, Mariah Carey's "All I Want For Christmas Is You" or Bing Crosby's "White Christmas" will undoubtedly be played at some point this season.

Those great classics aren't going anywhere, but if you're looking for something new, we've rounded up this year's new holiday offerings -- from Pentatonix to Motown and even "Downton Abbey."

So sit back, grab some egg nog -- and turn up the music.
