I hope this is in the right area, I don't really post in this area..

Is it on the weekend of US Thanksgiving that Sirius starts their Christmas Channel line up?

Thanks

I loved the Bing Crosby Christmas Radio on SIRIUS channel 113 and XM channel 120 last year.

" A non-stop broadcast of more than twenty years of vintage Bing Crosby holiday radio specials, hosted for SIRIUS XM by the Crosby family and featuring a wide variety of Crosby's beloved music-including his most popular recording ever, "White Christmas"-and special guests like Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland and Bob Hope. Bing Crosby Christmas Radio will air beginning December 13 at 12 midnight ET to Christmas Day, December 25. "

Usually they start with one station on Thanksgiving, which is likely to be Holly! Then they will add more as the days go by. In the past XM had as many as 5 Christmas channels. We'll have to see what Sirius XM does this year.

Holly has launched before the other holiday channels in the past. Last year Holly came on November 12, and the others on November 24 (the Monday of Thanksgiving week). 2 years ago, XM started Holly on November 1...but I think that had a lot to do with Thanksgiving being quite early that year (November 22). I don't believe Holly will come on that soon this year. Holly will probably be put up no later than November 15.

I see in the last couple of days XM's holiday programming page has been changed....just a few days ago it was still listing last year's holiday channels. Now it's saying the channels are coming soon.

Thanks Michael, I couldn't remember when it came on last year. But I knew it came on earlier than the others and stayed on through Jan 1.

Here is a link to the XM holiday page if anyone wants to follow it: Holiday Music on SIRIUS XM

Do you mean charismatic in saying "holly" or just scattered seasonal music???

:eek:

This was the description of Holly last year... "Holly will broadcast contemporary holiday hits mixed with selected traditional favorites and will include Bruce Springsteen, Amy Grant, The Carpenters, Mannheim Steamroller and more."
