    Use your own Christmas selection. If you have CDs or digital versions of Christmas songs that you've amassed through the years, make a playlist using a program such as iTunes or simply slip a CD into your computer. While it's not "online" as such, it's still something you can listen to from your computer as you work or play.


  • Note that you might be limited by where you're listening from––some stations may not play in your region due to issues of copyright or similar restrictive laws.


  • If you're keen to share your own Christmas playlist with others, make sure it's based on already authorized uploaded music. Don't upload music to which you don't own the copyright. The music monopolists may request that it be taken down and your account (wherever it is) could be compromised for breach of copyright; in some cases you may be sued for financial recompense. You don't want that for Christmas.
