Christmas Music Madness

In 2012, I hosted the first Christmas Music Madness here on my blog and we all had so much fun. It has been three years since the first one and it is time to do it again. There are so many new Christmas songs that have come out in the past three years and plus I have a lot of new followers to my blog. I hope that you will play along with this and have fun!

Here is what the Christmas Music Madness 2015 is all about. It is to find my reader’s favorite Christmas song – secular or religious. Once nominations are over, I will place the songs in a 16 team bracket for a battle to the end and to be crowned the Christmas Music Madness Champion.

Here is how it works. There will be one week of nominations of your favorite Christmas song. You can nominate one song per day – each day or you can nominate a different song each day – every day. It is that simple.

After the week of nominations are over, I will calculate the votes and the song with the most number of nominations goes into the #1 spot in the bracket. The top 16 songs nominated will be placed in the bracket and move on into the Sweet 16 Round.

The following is the schedule for the Christmas Music Madness 2015:

Nomination Week: November 26 – December 4
The Sweet 16: December 6 – December 11
The Elite 8: December 13 – December 18
The Final Four: December 20 – December 25
The Finals: December 26th – December 31
The Christmas Music Madness 2015 Champion crowned: January 1, 2016

So, quick review – from November 26 – December 4, 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 December 6. 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 Christmas Music Madness 2015 Champion!

Let the MADNESS begin – Nominate your song here!

The Final FourWe are down to the Final Four movies in our Christmas Movie Madness and yes Virginia, upsets do happen! We had the following movies paired against each other last week in our Elite Eight round:

#1 – It’s A Wonderful Life vs #9 – A Christmas Story

#2 – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation vs #10 – Miracle on 34th Street

#3 – Elf vs #6 – The Santa Clause

#4 – The Nativity Story vs #12 – The Polar Express

The top three movies in the Christmas Movie Madness have moved on to the Final Four, but The Nativity Story was ousted by The Polar Express.

As we move closer to the Championship Game, the voting get more difficult. The Final Four pairings are as follows:

#1 – It’s A Wonderful LIfe is going against #12 – The Polar Express while #2 – National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation has its work cut out for it as it faces #3 – Elf.

Could we have an upset in the Final Four round? VOTE NOW!

O Come Emmanuel

Dec 5, 2013 — Leave a comment

“O Come, O Come Emmanuel” is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Christ came the first time to pay the ultimate price for all of our sins – His life. The Holy, Spotless, Lamb of God was our only hope.

With the way the world is today, this song takes on a whole new meaning. I think of the verse in Revelation 22:20 which says,

He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

I am ready for HIM to come again! Are you? O come, O Come Emmanuel!
