No hatred here. This question always begins around mid-October.
With "The Lite" branding dead and buried, this year, the Christmas music will be branded as "My Holiday." (The word "Lite" will not be used.) Edison will indeed be back, as well. "The Lite-Nosed Reindeer" tag line will most likely be gone, though. It's just plain ol' "Edison."
As for the start date, most likely it will be the same as the last couple of years. Decisions like that are driven by PPM, not weather or fan requests. The "December" PPM ratings period begins on Thursday, November 7th. Look for the holiday music to begin on that date, or within two days on either side of it.
