Construction Season. Winter. Christmas Music season. That’s it for Chicago and this year it’s starting a little earlier than normal. With Halloween ending last week, it’s now time to get into the Holiday spirit and jam out to some Christmas tunes. Because why not?
On Friday, Chicago’s 93.9 LITE FM kicked off the festivities by flipping the switch to Christmas Music at 4 p.m. And it’s a tradition unlike any other here in the Windy City. Look, you either love Christmas music or you hate it. While it might seem like it’s a little early, we all need a little good Holiday vibes in our lives, especially this year.

This is the earliest that LITE FM have flipped the switch since 2006 when they did it on November 2nd. But they have a good reason why as program director Mick Lee noted to Robert Feder:
“After a year like 2020, we need holiday music more than ever,” said Mick Lee, program director and afternoon host at 93.9 Lite FM. “Listeners can count on us to help spread joy, hope and love across the city as we celebrate 20 years. . . . We’ll have fun contests, a few new surprises, and of course, the wonderful holiday music.”
I’m here for all of the Christmas music so drop your favorites in the comments below. Let’s go.
