How do you get into the holiday spirit? By making your gift list and checking it twice, baking cookies with your kids or grands, hibernating with your honey or reminiscing with your girls over a glass of grown-up eggnog or sparkling cider?

To help you enjoy the season, just push Play and keep the holiday cheer flowing from your speakers or earbuds. (You can stream tracks for free — just take a minute to download the music player app). Sisters’warm and cozy wintry mix includes contemporary Christmas classics from Mariah Carey (“All I Want for Christmas Is You”), Donny Hathaway (“This Christmas”), Wham! (“Last Christmas”) and Darlene Love (“Christmas [Baby Please Come Home]”). We’ve mixed in jazzy and soulful renditions of fa-la-la-la-la favorites by Diane Reeves (“Christmas Time Is Here”), Smokey Robinson & the Miracles (“Jingle Bells”), Shirley Horn (“Winter Wonderland”), Ledisi (“What a Wonderful World”) and Ella Fitzgerald (“What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve?”). Plus, you’ll enjoy spirited hip-hop, gospel and world holiday offerings from Run-D.M.C. (“Christmas in Hollis”), Mary J. Blige (“Mary, Did You Know”), Komandant Simi (“Kwanzaa Celebration”), Yo La Tengo (“Eight Candles”) and Matisyahu’s beatbox Hanukkah song (“Miracle”).
