A 24-hour Christmas radio station has launched in the UK

There are less than three months to go until Christmas Day and we’re just a little excited about it.

Buddy the Elf levels of excitement…

The festive season will be here before we know it and we cannot wait to listen to Christmas songs for as long as possible.

It isn’t acceptable to listen to Last Christmas by Wham in the middle of the summer, but the holidays are nearly here.

And we’re not the only ones who cannot wait to listen to Michael Bublé’s festive album on repeat.

A 24-hour radio station in the UK has launched and it only plays Christmas music.

Heart Radio launched its Christmas station on September 22nd, 94 days before Christmas Day.

Heart Xmas is already playing festive music, but we’re here for it.

This is the earliest the station has started broadcasting and we can’t say we blame them.

Some may think it’s a little too early, Halloween deserves her time to shine too, but if you’re less of a Grinch then you can tune into the station now.

The team promises to play “the ultimate festive soundtrack with all the best hits as the countdown has officially begun”.

If anyone needs me I’ll be listening to Mariah.
