Item Alias: 12days



Welcome to 12 Days of "Christmas", a music writing challenge brought to you by "The Soundtrackers Group! This activity is held every December and celebrates the holiday spirit by focusing on artists that inspire you during whatever holidays you happen to celebrate this month. If you've got some holiday cheer to spread, please read on!


How It Works

This is a blogging challenge!

During this challenge, your task will be to create twelve (12) blog entries based on EITHER:

         *Bullet* A Christmas carol, song, hymn, etc., OR
         *Bullet* A carol, song, hymn, etc. related to another December holiday of your choosing (including, but certainly not limited to):
                   - Hanukkah
                   - Kwanzaa
                   - New Year's Eve
                   - Boxing Day
                   - Festivus
                   - World AIDS Day
                   - Taylor Swift's Birthday
                   - Flag Day of India
                   - International Civil Aviation Day

Please note that when I say RELATED TO another December holiday, that doesn't mean it has to be ABOUT that holiday. Part of this challenge is explaining why you picked the song and what it means to you, so if "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (to Party)" by The Beastie Boys is a significant song to recognize on Human Rights Day (December 10th), then that's totally fine! In fact, creativity is highly encouraged as long as you can justify it!
