And the winner is….
“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by 3 votes! Final score was 39-36 over “O Holy Night.”
In the third place match, “Carol of the Bells” won out over “Mr. Grinch” with a final score of 45-24.
Once again, thanks to everyone for playing along. Maybe it’s not the most shocking outcome, but I had fun running this bracket, and I hope you all had fun voting. Even with a field of 128 songs, there are a ton of songs nominated that didn’t make the cut, and even more that weren’t even nominated! Feel free to post your overlooked favorites in the comments.
