Back in March of this year, I held a Music March Madness on my blog to correspond with the college basketball “big dance” NCAA Tournament. I asked for nominations from my viewers of their favorite Christian songs. After several weeks of nominations, the brackets were set and the voting began.
One by one, favorite songs fell and others rose until ultimately we crowned “Amazing Grace – My Chains Are Gone” as the champion.
With Christmas right around the corner, I started thinking about what are people’s favorite Christmas songs. So, I have decided to have a Christmas version of my Music March Madness to see what my viewers favorite Christmas songs would be.
Beginning November 12, and going until November 24, you will be able to nominate your favorite Christmas song by visiting my blog and submitting your song. This can be your favorite secular or non-secular song, but you can only nominate one song per day. If you want to nominate the same song each day while the nominations are open, then that is fine by me, or you can nominate a new song each day.
After the nominations are closed, I will tally the votes and the song with the most nominations will be placed in the #1 spot. The song with the least amount of votes will be placed in the #16 spot. #1 will go against #16, #2 will be battle #15 and so on.
On November 26, the brackets will be revealed and the voting will begin. The rounds will be laid out as follows:
- The Sweet 16: Nov 26th – Dec 1
- The Elite 8: Dec 3 – Dec 8
- The Final Four: Dec 10 – Dec 15
- The Finals: Dec 17 – Dec 22
- Dec 25: The champion is crowned!
So, quick review – from Nov 12 – Nov 24, you can submit one song per day of your favorite Christmas song (be sure to come back each day). After nominations are closed and tallied, the brackets will be set and the voting will being on Nov 26th. You can then vote for your song one time each day. The song with the most votes will move on to the next round until we have eliminated all of the songs except one – the winner!
