It’s beginning to sound a lot like Christmas!

Of course Christmastime is about family, friends, Yuletide fun—and gifts. Don’t forget the gifts. But it’s also about the Christmas music! If you’re not one of those enthusiastically festive people who kicks off the season to the tune of “Santa Baby” while the Thanksgiving turkey is still in the oven, no worries. We’re convinced these five holiday hits from Las Vegas headliners will provide the perfect soundtrack to rockin’ around the Christmas tree for even the most committed of Bah! Humbugs!

Crank up the celebratory cheer and make plans to see the hottest acts on the Strip from now until long after your neighbor’s Christmas lights come down.

1. “All I Want For Christmas is you” — Mariah Carey

“When I wrote ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You,’ it was my dream for it to become a classic Christmas song,” Mariah Carey once told PEOPLE magazine. The pop icon’s dream undeniably came true because the holiday tune is a must-have in any festive playlist. It’s not Christmas until you hear it. And it’s not a Vegas vacay until you catch the best-selling female artist of all time in “MARIAH #1 TO INFINITY.” The striking production returns to The Colosseum at Caesars Palace in February of next year.

 2. “Happy XMas (War is over)” — Céline Dion

Céline Dion lends her powerhouse vocals to this melodious call for peace by John & Yoko/Plastic Ono Band and the Harlem Community Choir that has now become a holiday standard. See why Newsweek regards the five-time Grammy winner’s residency as “the biggest act since Elvis,” when you catch more of her covers and all her greatest hits at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

3. “My Only Wish (This Year)” — Britney spears

The Queen of Pop was a mere princess when she released this little number that asks Santa to bring her a beau for Christmas. Pleading, “Santa can you hear me?” the single songstress wishes for true love wrapped in a big red bow. Now if your wish is to see Britney Spears in Vegas, you don’t need jolly, old Saint Nicholas’ blessing. Just get to Zappos Theater at Planet Hollywood where “Britney: Piece of Me,” slays the stage.

4. “O Holy Night” — Reba Mcentire

This Christmas classic adapted from a French poem in the mid-1800s becomes even more poetic when country superstar, Reba, bursts into non-secular song. And the Colosseum at Caesars Palace is made even more in demand when the Country Music Hall of Fame and Hollywood Bowl Hall of Fame inductee belts out some of her 35 #1 singles and more alongside big deal-duo Brooks & Dunn.

5. “Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!”— Rod Stewart

A time-honored winter hit that was written in the simmering summer is only made cooler when Rod Stewart covers it with his uniquely raspy voice. Known for making holidays special, the renowned rocker also makes his shows at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace exceptional—with songs that span five decades and audience interaction that may have you getting up close and personal with the legend himself.
