Quintessential island beach bum Jimmy Buffet has one. So does country supergroup Alabama. Even 18-year-old pop star Justin Bieber has a Christmas album.

The popularity of Christmas music has prompted countless musicians from all genres to put out Christmas albums for decades. It doesn’t matter that the songs get played five or so weeks every year.

Now that Thanksgiving is over, attention shifts to the next holiday on many people’s calendars. In other words, permission to pull out your Christmas albums — if you haven’t already — is granted.

To help you mix up your Christmas music for various occasions or moods, and perhaps introduce you to new tunes, here are several playlists of Christmas songs that I put together with the help of features writer Rachel Sauer.
