Welcome to the challenge season of year three. Our wonderful hostess, VitaminDee, had to terminate the "contest" prematurely. We would be remiss to not thank her for the amazing work she has done on the site and allowing us to use what she has created to set up this challenge
Shortly after the termination, we had many Snappers request that they would like to continue singing the planned events. VitaminDee agreed to let we elves finish the 4 remaining events as a "challenge". This means that we will be singing, having fun, listening and commenting on our friends posts. However, there will be no prizes or other trinkets earned. Based on this we have removed much of the "contest" related information to handle a challenge.
Welcome to year three. the challenge season. We're putting together a collection of treasured Christmas/holiday songs. To ensure you get to sing the songs you love best; this is a Christmas/Holiday song scavenger hunt.
Each week is a new challenge. Weekly in a new thread under the challenges tab, there will be a new Christmas/holiday song scavenger hunt hunt. Enter as much or as little as you wish.
Questions? Send a pm to our new hostess TeaCup10.
The entire hunt will be posted below. Begin searching & singing as soon as you wish. Wait until the corresponding week to post your entry.
Please sing what makes you happy. Choose any recognized Christmas/holiday song that you think fits each scavenger hunt best.
This year, we are challenging you to look beyond your 1st choice.
Variety is the goal. Google, Bing, Wikipedia and other popular search engines are great ways to introduce you to a new-to-you holiday song. Each topic was tested by a team of Christmas song testers.

EXAMPLE: I searched "Christmas Commercial 70s" and found this montage: "Volume 3: An Hour of Retro Christmas Commercials".

Are you having trouble finding a song that fits this week? I did so much searching and was about to give up till I found an easy way. First, pick a song you'd like to sing. Then add "Commercial" and google it. My first thought was Jingle Bells, so I googled "Jingle Bells Commercial." This brought up the K Mart Joe Boxer underwear ad, and since we have to do a video, I tried again, LOL. Most any song should work.

That's a great way to search and it can be a slide show, or a video or go on cam

Tekcar gave a great detailed example using youtube in the scavenger hunt description too

I went to youtube and typed the name of the pre recorded song i had and the word commercial and booom found a commercial that featured the song i wanted to submit

easy peasy

WOW

Somehow, this gecko from St. Lucia that my grandee gifted me while smiling this morning, tugged my heart strings all day simply making my Thanksgiving holiday!! This gift is from the Little Drummer Boy who played drums for us 2 years ago in VitaminDee's Most Awesome Christmas Playlist Contest.
