Leah Felder's California Christmas album rules. Seriously, we don't think there's anyone else who can better evoke the idea of Santa in Swim Trunks, palm trees in christmas lights, and a glass of egg nog on the beach. And we love it. "Mambo Santa Mambo" is FAR from overdone, and we take our hats off to Leah for including it on her album. (available at iTunes!)

2. All I Want For Christmas Is This Girl's Talent

Whoa. Mary Desmond is only 14 years old and sound like she's got years under her belt. Step aside, Jackie Evancho. Well, maybe not step aside. A duet perhaps? This chick's got the chops, and we love her completely respectable mashup of "O Holy Night" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas."

3. Next Year, We're Spending Christmas In The Phillipines

I think Santa might relocate his workshop after watching this video.

4. Cee-lo Can Be My Santa Any Day

We actually would like to see Christina Aguilera's father pacing the floor, worried about her date night with Cee-lo.

5. We're Suckers for Elvis Impersonators

Is it Christmas if Elvis isn't there? We don't think so...and Jimmy here does a GREAT impression of the King! Here Comes Santa Claus, indeed.
