iTunes (UK) has a Christmas present for you - 12 of them, to be exact. Unfortunately, as will be true for most gifts you'll receive this holiday season, you don't get to choose what you'll receive.

The 12 Days of Christmas promo runs from December 26 through January 6, and it will bestow upon European iTunesters a daily tune, music video, app, film, or TV episode from what iTunes (UK) promises are "some of the biggest star performers on iTunes."

Apple UK's free-tunes offer

No partridges, no pear trees

According to Cult of Mac, last year's "biggest star performers" included Katy Perry, Lily Allen, and The Ting Tings. Fans of, say, Hilary Hahn or the Samuel Blaser Quartet may want to sit this one out.

The rest of you can take advantage of the promo by providing the good folks at iTunes (UK) with your email address and they'll send you an alert on each of the 12 days - and they promise to delete your info on day 13. Alternatively, you can join the happy friends of iTunes (UK) on its Facebook page to get the daily updates. Each of the free downloads will be available for 24 hours.

The promo is being sponsored by The Times, Capital FM ("London's No.1 Hit Music Station"), heart ("more music variety"), Ticketmaster, and O2. ®
