There's nothing like a little holiday music to get you in the holiday mood. To help you get your holiday music fix this season, here are some Web sites streaming holiday music:
Pandora's holiday genre has several stations including pop, classical, R&B, country, rock, children's, and more. They're all available through the mobile app as well.
Slacker has a nice selection of holiday stations to choose from. Just navigate to the "Seasonal" section and you'll see the list of stations. The stations are accessible via the mobile app, too.
iHeartRadio's holiday genre has three featured stations: Christmas Lites, Country Christmas, and Holiday Jams. It also has a commercial-free Holiday Mix station and 17 holiday music radio stations from across the country. The mobile app can stream all the stations as well.
977Music (Club977) started out as an '80s-only Internet music station, which gained popularity when it was listed in iTunes. Since that time, it's added several other stations, including a holiday station. It doesn't have a mobile app, but if your mobile device has a Flash-enabled browser, you can stream directly from the browser.
Amazon isn't streaming holiday music, but instead, it's giving away a free holiday MP3 download every day through Christmas. After you download the MP3s, you can listen to them on your mobile device via the Amazon Cloud Player.
NPR.org had a 100-song playlist last December that included "Bach to The Ramones to Louis Armstrong." It hasn't posted a new playlist yet this season, but watch out for it in the holiday music section. We'll update this post when it does.
