I can't wait!  I also heard this morning that there is a new holiday channel this year:


Hallmark Channel and SiriusXM announced today a new 24/7 holiday music channel, Hallmark Channel Radio, which is scheduled to launch on Thursday, November 1 in conjunction with the network’s highly popular “Countdown to Christmas” programming event.

Hallmark Channel’s 24/7 “Countdown to Christmas” initiative has become an annual holiday tradition for millions of viewers nationwide, while SiriusXM offers an extensive lineup of holiday music channels across an array of genres. This year Hallmark Channel and SiriusXM are joining forces to bring the warmth and joy of the season to listeners across the country with Hallmark Channel Radio.

On another note, I wonder why some of these stations start so late in December.


I was wondering the same thing...we have a local station that will start in the next week or two with non-stop Christmas music until December 26ish (they start weaning us off around that date, lol)...
