The holiday spirit is strong with Microsoft, as Surface Pro 4-headlined “12 Days of Deals” will begin on Monday, just as various Cyber Monday leftovers are set to expire. Meanwhile, today only, i.e. until 11:59 p.m. PT on December 2, or “while supplies last”, US Windows Store visitors can nab a boatload of premium Christmas audio content free of charge.

All you technically need to do is present a valid Groove Music Pass before enjoying your complimentary downloads, or simpler and cheaper yet, sign up now for a free 30-day trial. That’s technically, because it seems the restriction can be circumvented if you really don’t want to try out Redmond’s digital music streaming service, formerly dubbed Xbox and Zune Music.

As for exactly what you’re getting, it’s a bona fide holiday must-have for tree decorators, stocking stuffers, and even heart-growing Grinch copycats. In fact, you can probably put the original soundtrack of Boris Karloff’s 1966 animated classic “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” at the top of your free holiday playlist.

Follow that up with Justin Bieber’s retro and modern “Under the Mistletoe, Deluxe Edition” album mix, Ariana Grande’s first holiday EP, “Christmas Kisses”, “A Mary Christmas” from Mary J. Blige, The Jackson 5’s “Ultimate Christmas Collection”, Rod Stewart’s “Merry Christmas, Baby” deluxe variant, the remastered and expanded “A Charlie Brown Christmas” soundtrack, “A Motown Christmas”, and last but not least, the Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s “Dreams of Fireflies.”

In total, that’s nine great albums, typically worth a combined $80 or so, available for free on Windows PCs and phones, iOS, Android devices and more.
