The tough part is finding these awesome Celtic Christmas albums. Unless you're familiar with the specific artists, you might not be able to find them due to the overpopulation of crappy “Celtic Christmas” music with good marketers.
I started using Spotify as a Celtic music sampling tool. I can look up a bunch of Celtic musicians and listen to their albums and decide if the music is good enough to add to my personal stash of Celtic Christmas music. I found a few killer albums.

I have one final Christmas music playlist. It's Fun Christmas Music for Kids. It's not just Celtic Christmas music. It's a bunch of my favorite Christmas songs, both Celtic and non-Celtic. Yes. There's even some Whitney Houston. Just great Christmas songs!
