Have you heard of Celtic Woman?

If not, you're missing out! Celtic Woman is a four-woman ensemble group from Ireland. And we were lucky enough to meet them while they were in L.A.

Chloë Agnew, Lisa Lambe, Susan McFadden and violinist Máiréad Nesbitt must love the holidays as much as we do because they have put out their second Christmas album.

Home For Christmas features holiday classics, such as "Winter Wonderland," "Silent Night" and "I'll Be Home For Christmas."

"There is nothing like playing with a live symphony band," said Lisa when we asked what their favorite part of touring is. But their musical taste runs the gamut. "We are inspired by all acts across the board, like Lady Antebellum and Mumford and Sons."

When asked what people would be surprised to know about them, Celtic Woman collectively mentioned one thing: "We're not rock 'n roll. We may have a rock 'n roll schedule, but after shows, we put on our pajamas and have a cup of tea."

When it comes to Christmas traditions, the quartet keeps it simple: "Stay home, with family. We don't leave our houses!"

That makes sense, considering how much time they've spent on the road on their North America Christmas Celebration Symphony Tour.

Check out Home For Christmas. It's the perfect stocking stuffer!
