As we"re nearing the end of the holiday season, Sirius XM is offering listeners an opportunity to vote on which song they"d like to hear next. You can vote for your favorite holiday music, or vote for the Trans-Siberian Orchestra version of "Silent Night" for a chance to win tickets to their December 27 concert.
These are just some of the Christmas music options on the Sirius XM app and in the satellite radio. Whether you want to listen to classic holiday tunes, contemporary holiday hits, or Hanukkah-themed music, you"ll find it on the Sirius XM App and on the satellite channels.
