As reported elsewhere on this Forum Holly began on November 2nd on SiriusXM,

Holly kicks off SiriusXM?s 2016 holiday channel line-up | SiriusXM Blog

181.FM have 18 Christmas music channels running now:

At accuradio you will find dozens of Christmas Music channels:

I also believe that Stingray Christmas music will begin tomorrow, November 12th and KISC-FM (heard coast to coast in Canada on Shaw Direct and in Western Canada on Shaw Cable) will flip to 24 hour Christmas tomorrow.

57 radio stations in North America have flipped so far, as you can see here:

StationIntel

BIRMINGHAM,Alabama's WENN-AM was the first to flip on October,28/2016.

"Stingray Music will begin airing holiday music starting November 16th. In the meantime, we are happy to let you know that you can enjoy multiple Holiday channels starting today on the Stingray Music mobile app for free with your cable subscription!"

As of this morning, there are 139 stations who have flipped according to the Stationintel site:

StationIntel

Only 3 of them are Canadian. As stated in previous posts, not all stations are listed here.

Note: A correction on a previous post of mine, KISC-FM, Spokane, has not flipped, as I predicted that they would. Not sure if they will flip to all Christmas music this year or not?

Winnipeg:

Fresh Radio 99.1 Switched on November 11th to All Christmas all day. (I think they are going to re-brand the station again in the new year)

Kiss FM 102.3 switched on November 25th at 6pm. They are all Christmas all day right now too.
