Christmas Carol Contest?

See the source image

We have a custom around here of taking requests for Christmas hymns as part of our yearly Christmas celebration. We’ve had a lot of fun with that, the past two years, and I’ve been thinking of making it more fun yet by holding a Christmas carol contest.

How does this grab you? Whoever requests the Christmas hymn that gets the most views on the day it’s requested, wins a prize. I was thinking of “most views overall” from after Thanksgiving to New Year’s, but that would be letting myself in for a major scorekeeping job. Besides, this way the apparent winner could change from day to day–unbearably exciting!

Anyway, folks, what do you think? Open to suggestion…

  1. Great idea, Lee. As if your posts were not already interesting enough, you go and up the ante for us. Thank you.

    1. Tut-tut, the contest doesn’t begin until the day after Thanksgiving. But I’ll post the song anyway–just can’t say no.

  2. Can’t ever go wrong with Christmas carols. They are the ones I have all the verses memorized. I sing them all year round – try it sometime and experience how it lifts up your spirit.

  3. Sounds like a great idea, Lee, and I admire your willingness and intestinal fortitude to take on yet another project – even as the faceless, nameless ones continue to harass you over your poor Aunt Joan’s non-estate.

    1. I really wonder if this project will ever be finished. They’re out of luck, if I die before it’s done. Every time we think we’re finished with it, they come up with something else.
