Oldies 103 point 3 has "Step[ped] Into Christmas" with both boots.  Thanksgiving day, they were running a Christmas Music special until midnight.  Lots of less-well-known holiday ditties like "One Christmas Tree" by Stevie Wonder.  They're rotating Christmas music fairly frequently already (2 or more per hour?) and they're running Holiday Promos with servicemen overseas (Kuwait, Korea, etc) wishing Happy Holidays to their parents, siblings, etc.  Haven't heard a guy wishing his wife Merry Christmas, yet.  

Someone called in yesterday to request "Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer" and Mighty Mike Osborne kidded him and asked if really didn't want "Dominick The Donkey", instead.

STRANGE:  One caller wished Mighty Mike a Happy Thanksgiving.  A left-over call?
