I forgot to mention this earlier. It's been up the entire season, but since I typically switch around the 20th or so (I switched a bit earlier this year because of signal issues regarding 106.7):

https://www.classicalwcrb.org

Stream "Perfect Holiday Party Soundtrack". You'll get a single ad immediately upon clicking but none after that until you stop and start again. It contains some instrumental and some choral, and I would say about 60% are religious. There are a few you might not recognize (I would say nothing more obscure than Il est n le divin enfant, which isn't universally known but is known by a decent percentage).

(The other two streams include more obscure pieces. Heavenly Holiday Classics includes long pieces like Messiah, the entirety of the Nutcracker, and Charpentier's Christmas Mass, while Ultimate Holiday Classical Mix is all standalone but I only recognize about 1/3. You'll definitely want the Party Soundtrack.)

The end is fast approaching, so I was wondering something else: Does your station flip back to regular music at midnight on December 26th, or at a later date and time? I remember a time when the former was done nationwide, but now that rule has apparently been relaxed because few stations extend their holiday marathon to the first Friday/Saturday/Sunday after Christmas. (However, this year I wouldn't count on it going past Friday, since the next two days will be New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, respectively.)

I know Magic 106.7 in Boston goes right back to regular music starting on the 26th.

At one time ZRadio in Orlando kept it going beyond Christmas Day, but in the past few decades have stopped after the 25th.  It seems they were catering to the denominations that believed in Advent with Christmas only starting on the 25th, but now stopped.

WBVM being part of the Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg, FL has kept it going till New Years to keep up with the Catholic Liturgy, as New Years the Church stops its Christmas music at mass even though their season official ends after the Second Sunday of January.

It is almost comical how WMJI in Cleveland, after playing Christmas music nonstop since before Halloween, cut to "regular" stuff as soon as possible after midnight passed.  One might think that especially with the legal holiday being the Monday and people still in the holiday mode, maybe another day of it? Nope!  Even the Hallmark Channel continues Christmas movies until January 1!

KDGE-Star 102.1 in Dallas, TX started their Christmas music rotation on November 10th.

In Dallas, KDGE went back to standard music on the 26th. WRR 101 (yes, a station west of the Mississippi that begins with a W), however, is sticking with holiday music until January 2nd because they are transitioning to being managed by KERA and becoming a non-commercial all-classical station.
