Advent Celebration – Dec 7th

Carols were first sung in Europe thousands of years ago, but these were not Christmas Carols. They were pagan songs, sung at the Winter Solstice celebrations as people danced round stone circles. The Winter Solstice is the shortest day of the year, usually taking place around the 22nd December. The word Carol actually means dance or a song of praise and joy! Carols used to be written and sung during all four seasons, but only the tradition of singing them at Christmas has really survived!

Advent Day 7

PRIZE: ???

TASK: Your task today is to embrace the tradition of old and sing a merry song! That’s right, you heard correctly. It can just be you into a microphone, song and vocals, humming, anything that makes a sound and came from your body!

I will announce today’s winner at 10 PM EST.

Only two entrants today, but in all honesty, both entries were fantastic! I didn’t expect this level of effort so seriously well done!

Hallan Turrek, with his angelic voice, and Yakshamash with his sultry rythmns, are both today’s contest winners!

Hallan has won himself a digital copy of One Night of Roc.

Yakshamash has won himself a digital copy of Bio.

Please make sure I have both of your emails at and I will set things up for you.

  1. You know what I love about these during the week? I get a 30 minute window between getting up for work and going to work to do them. *mutter*

    Can’t you announce the winner the next day, along with the next contest?
