Holiday Showdowns!

Kim…what is this nonsense?
Starting in 2019, I began hosting a bracket-style tournament featuring Holiday music. It went over well, so I thought I’d do it again the following year…and seeing as we were all in the height of Covid restrictions and trying to keep ourselves sane, I decided to throw in Holiday movies as well.

I’m back at it again for 2021…this time I am just sticking with movies as I find it more enjoyable (and if I’m honest, it tends to rile people up when I throw in things like Die Hard or Krampus…and I like to be a sh*t stirrer). I’m trying something new this year by creating a dedicated FB page to hopefully allow more folks to participant and actually SEE the posts, but the polls will also be featured here.

2019 Holiday Music Showdown This was before I realized how easy it was to make a bracket using a spreadsheet. Don’t judge. Winner: Bing Crosby’s White Christmas

2020 Holiday Music Showdown I was ambitious and did BOTH music and movies. It was a bit tricky keeping up with both, but…we were in lockdown mode, what else did I have to do?! Winner: Bing Crosby’s White Christmas

2020 Holiday Movie Showdown As I said, I was ambitious and did both music and movies. I personally feel the movie showdown is more enjoyable…but that’s just me. Winner: White Christmas (I am sensing a trend…)

2021 Holiday Movie Showdown Another successful movie showdown in the books! Winner: Charlie Brown Christmas

2022 Halloween Movie Showdown I couldn’t wait until the holidays for a bracket, so I put together a Halloween movie showdown! It was quite fun! Winner: Beetlejuice

2022 Holiday Movie Showdown This bracket ended in a tie! Winners: Christmas Vacation & The Muppet Christmas Carol

2022 Holiday Music Showdown Yeah, even after doing the Halloween bracket and the Holiday movies, I decided to do the music bracket, too. I am nothing if not ambitious. Winner: Christmas Wrapping by The Waitresses
