Christmas is creeping up on us ridiculously quickly, though you'd hardly know if by the looks of San Diego's weather—not a snowflake in sight. Nonetheless, local musicians are getting into the spirit with their own renditions of holiday classics or original holiday tunes. Here are some of 2013's San Diego holiday jams.

Sledding with Tigers have shared a characteristically emotional, sorta bummed-out Xmas jam titled "Jamie Frankie Numbie One," which you can stream via Sledding with Tigers' Tumblr page.

Flaggs have a fun new tune called "Please Santa," which you can stream below or download for free via the band's website.

Psychic Dancehall, featuring Charles Rowell of Crocodiles, trip out on some synth-heavy jams with St. Nick on a new-wave-psych tune called "Santa is a Freak."

Jara Jara Jara
recorded a cover of Darlene Love's "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)":

And though this one's a few years old, it's worth reposting: Nervous Wreckords' "All I Want for Christmas is $$":

Add these to your Xmas playlist, spike the eggnog and let the holiday debauchery begin!
