    Billboard.com reports that "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" singer Pat Benatar and her husband Neil "Spyder" Giraldo have already started writing and gathering material for a new Christmas collection, which they hope to begin recording after coming off the road at the end of August. But you'll have to wait, as Benatar and Giraldo are planning a 2012 release for the holiday set.

    "We love Christmas," Benatar says. "We have a lot of traditional things, but also some kind of jump blues version of Christmas songs, a couple originals -- it'll be a mixed bag of things. We'll do a couple with horns again, which will be fun."

    Benatar may bundle some of her previously released holiday songs as part of the collection, including the September 11th charity single "Christmas in America" and the standard "Please Come Home For Christmas."

    "There's a lot of stuff," the singer said. "The recording will go quickly. We'll do it the old way -- cut the tracks together, not a bunch of overdubs. We know how to do that pretty well."

    What is your favorite Christmas carol?
