E! Online: Though Christmas comes just once a year, royalty checks for Christmas CDs come all year round, which may explain why so many holiday anthems are still recorded despite the fact that we have plenty already. Maybe we shouldn't complain, because each year we get new holiday music that's worth the fuss. With that in mind, here are some new Christmas offerings for your tasteful Yuletide enjoyment because holiday jams are too sweet to beat.
