Christmas FM to return to the airwaves on 28 November

It's the most wonderful time of the year.

As we are CERTAIN you have already heard, the Christmas lights were switched on in Dublin on Tuesday night.

To many, that's a sign that it is officially Christmas time. To others, it's always the first day of December, while to more, it's not until they get their Christmas holidays.

But to loads of people, the festive season only truly begins when Christmas FM starts playing on the radio and these people now have just two weeks to wait until the station is back.

That's right, Christmas FM will launch on Irish airwaves on Thursday 28 November!

This year, the festive radio station will be raising money for Barretstown, a camp for children with cancer and other serious illnesses.

They will be aiming to raise over €250,000, which will go directly towards Barretstown’s mission of rebuilding the lives of seriously ill children and their families, through life-changing Therapeutic Recreation Programmes in a safe, fun and supported environment.

All the while, they'll be playing everyone's favourite Christmas songs.

It really is the best time of the year.

This will be Christmas FM's 12th year on the air, having raised roughly €2 million for charity since the project started in 2008.
