Few topics start a more heated debate in Buffalo - and throughout the country - than when holiday music should start being played on the radio each year.
The News' Bruce Andriatch detailed how STAR 102.5 FM elected to be the first radio station to play exclusively holiday music on Nov. 6. We looked to Buffalo Twitter, then, to gauge the popular reaction to the unofficial arrival of the holiday season.
Excuse the pun, but the responses were polar opposites - jolly folks were balanced by some moderately amusing Grinches.
Okay guys Star 102.5 has started Christmas music so it's Christmas season. 🎅🏻🎅🏻🎅🏻🎅🏻🤶🏻🤶🏻🤶🏻🎄🎄🎄🎁🎁

Every year I'm skeptical of when the Christmas music comes on @mystar1025 but then I hear it and it makes me too happy to not love it.

Hearing Christmas music on the radio makes me happy for 2 reasons: 1. It is almost Christmas🎅🏼☃️ 2. That means my 1st semester of college is almost over😍🙏🏻
