From the ridiculous (Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer) to the sublime (Silent Night), Christmas music comes in all shapes and sizes performed by everyone from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to a group of barking dogs. We all have our favorite carols, and now, we want to find out which one is yours.
Between now and Christmas Eve, we’ll be conducting a Christmas Music Showdown during which you get to decide which of 100 great holiday tunes is the best.
We start today posting 20 songs in each of five categories:
- Sacred Carols
- Country Christmas Songs
- Pop Christmas Songs
- Rock Christmas Songs
- Novelty Christmas Songs
Over the next week, you get to vote and in a week we’ll post the five favorites in each category. And, of course, you get to vote again.
Then, just before Christmas. we’ll post the top vote-getters in each category, and the you decide the overall winner, the best-loved Christmas song of all.
Feel free to use the “Comments” box below to tell us why you like a song or what you think of Christmas music in general.
Throughout the Christmas Music showdown we’ll post videos of some of the tunes as well as a quiz or two about the season.
And, to help get you in the mood, here’s a video of some of the songs listed above and holiday scenes. (Hot chocolate and roaring fire not included …)
