    As the season approaches I've been thinking about a Christmas music battle. Something that would hopefully finish in a week or two (how deep could our collections be, right?) but still be fun for us Christmas music lovers.

    Any interest?

    Edit:
    It'll be run like the previous Daily Hip-Hop and Metal challenges

    Edit 2: tentative start date Nov 27, Cyber Monday

    How deep could our collections be? *menacing laugh* You might have just opened Pandora's Christmas box with that one :)

    Color me intrigued! I'll probably wipe out after a few days but it'll still be fun.

    I was thinking about starting after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. That should give enough time for people to let me know they're interested.

    SAME. Though with less sinister cackling. I don't have an enormous Christmas vinyl collection, but I can participate for sure.

    Me too!

    I think that's kinda the idea. A fun, manageable challenge to kick off the Christmas season. Of course it depends how much overlap there is between collections.

    It's gonna be a race to play Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings Christmas album!

    Exactly. I don't want this thing to last until Christmas. If we make it a week I'll be ecstatic.

    Gonna start a general interest thread right now and move our posts over.

    Quiet, Ebenezer!

    Plus, I know you've got at least 2 Christmas records.
