It's that time of the year where you can't go anywhere -- drug stores, elevators, your great Aunt Frida's retirement center -- without being attacked by Christmas songs.

Not that we're complaining, but once in a while we find ourselves pining for a fresh new playlist to blast during the holiday season. And if the songs are by LGBT artists or allies, have a queer subtext (real or imagined) or are just too campy to resist, all the better!

Rather than wait for Santa Claus to gift us a collection of the gayest Christmas songs, we came up with one on our own.

So hang the mistletoe, pour the egg nog and hit play. We guarantee these 27 tracks will make your holiday Mary... ahem... merry and bright.

(And if there's a queer Christmas song you love and it's not here, let us know in the comments section below.)
