2. 'Navidad Colombiana - Para Cantar Y Bailar La Novena De Aguinaldos'

The aguinaldo is traditional folk Christmas music. Originating in Puerto Rico, it's gained a popular foothold in a number of South American countries. This two-disc set contains 28 aguinaldos from Colombia performed by various artists and could easily be one of my favorite Christmas albums.

8. 'Navidad En Las Americas'

This album has a little bit of everything from Ricky Martin singing "Que Hermoso Nino" (What Child is This) and Celia Cruz crooning "Arbolito" to Jose Feliciano singing "Noche de Paz" (Silent Night). The big finale is worth the wait: "La Virgen Lava Panales" performed by Placido Domingo.
