Yay, the world didn't end, so another random contest!

Saturday, December 22, 2012
(Did you enter the last contest? You can check to see if you won on that post.)

Whelps, the world obviously didn't end yesterday. (I scheduled this one in advance on Monday, so hopefully I'm still here! LOL) So, you know what that means, right?

Yep, ANOTHER random contest! (I'm just disgustingly full of holiday cheer this year. Someone should probably get me checked out by a qualified doc...)

You're playing for a chance to win $10 in Strandbucks. How do you play?

What's your favorite holiday song? Funny or serious. I happen to love the "12 Pains of Christmas." (...stringing up the lights...one goes out, they ALL go out...)

I love songs that make me laugh. Sure, the classics are fine to sing with, but what's the holiday season without Alvin and the Chipmunks? Or Snoopy going up against the Red Baron? I know not everyone's tastes are as strange eclectic as mine, however.

Make sure to add your holiday favorite(s) to the list. I'll pick a commenter via random.org to win. Good luck!

  1. My favorite is Last Christmas by Wham!...yes I'm an 80's child! But on a lighter side one of my other favorites is Porky Pig's Blue Christmas, man that one just cracks me up everytime I hear it :D

    You're a Mean One, Mr Grinch. (From the animated movie) Love the Grinch ;)
    Makes it even better when my father-in-law sings it. Think of a hardcore, 30 year Marine Corps vet belting it out. It's hilarious!

    The classic version of Silver Bells. I get teary-eyed every. damn. time.

  1. My favorite is Mary did you know. My favorite silly Christmas song is anything by the Chipmunks.

  1. Ratatosk said...:

    Bare Naked Ladies version on Jingle Bells, which gets rock in' and includes Jingle Bells Batman Smells.

    On a side note I loath Christmas Shoes which usually leads to my screeching at the radio asking "who the hell sends a child to the store with not enough friggin money?" I apparently miss the point of it being a sad sappy song. MIT just makes my blood boil.

  1. I really like grown up Christmas list....but it always makes me teary

  1. One of my fave, fave funnies is Santa and his Old Lady by Cheech and Chong. Funny stuff....

  1. I have two favorite Christmas songs; Blue Christmas by Elvis Presley and Santa Claus and His Old Lady by Cheech and Chong! I love to listen to Christmas songs but I always start my holidays with my two favorites!

  1. Sarijane said...:

    Can't pick just one, but Silent Night, Little Drummer Boy and Silver Bells are my tops.

  1. SharonO said...:

    I like 'santa never made it to Darwin' though it's very sad. mostly because it's not overplayed.

  1. Lisa G said...:

    O Holy Night is my all time favorite "nice" carol, but the Redneck 12 Days of Christmas by Jeff Foxworthy is my favorite fun one.

  1. Bonnie C said...:

    What Child is This. Probably because I've always loved Greensleeves.

  1. Sara L said...:

    I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas! My absolute favorite!

  1. Santa Claus is Coming To Town. Probably because my hubby plays Santa, and I start singing it the first of November when I start the processing of bleaching his hair white.

  1. MaryMary said...:

    so many good ones listed already! while not funny they always make me feel Christmasy inside - I'll be home for Christmas by Dean Martin & Baby it's cold outside

  1. Gotta be Carol of the Bells.

  1. Wendy said...:

    I love, love, love Carol of the Bells, in almost all of its forms! No matter the time of year, that song makes me happy!

  1. Nicole said...:

    Stop the calvary. Not exactly a Christmas song but I love it anyway.

    Grandma got run over by a reindeer just because it discribes my family to a tee.

  1. Emily said...:

    I'm dreaming of a white Christmas or let it snow. I am from the south so we don't have a lot of snow (last year was the first time in YEARS it snowed on Christmas)
