Holiday Hometown Challenge
« on: November 30, 2019, 11:50:07 AM »
Hi there, It's almost Christmas time again.

  This is not really a challenge, there is no competition.  There will be no winner and there is no prize.  It is only my attempt to add a little more Christmas spirit to WOB this year.

  If you have been reading my Village Blog, Abandoned - Railway -part 2- Holiday Hometown  - story 51, you read in today's Chapter 10 that the citizens gathered round the Christmas tree and sang the song "Welcome Christmas" and they saw the Grinch.  He is pictured in screenshot named Yr. 10 Grinch.  The deco Grinch is in Kid's Christmas 2019 mod which will be released tomorrow, Dec 1st.

  Also in chapter 10 is a phrase from another Christmas song.  Starting in chapter 10, and scattered throughout the story thereafter, are other phrases and titles from other classic American Christmas songs.  Can you find them and name the songs?  Can you find the Grinch hidden in plain sight in some of the other screenshots to follow?

  So, as I said, this is not a challenge but more a game of Name that Christmas Tune and Where's Grinch.  Just something to keep in mind as you read my story and view the screenshots found here:

I hope you enjoy my story, this little game, Kid's Christmas 2019 mod, and the Christmas season.

The last hints  :)

There were 2 Grinch in Chapter 29 's screenshots, 1 in chapter 31, and the last Grinch was in Chapter 32 making it a total of 15 Grinch.

There was a video song in chapter 30 and a song in today's chapter 33.  Tomorrow's chapter 34 will have the last song making a total of 15 songs hidden in the story.

I hope you had a little fun trying to find the Christmas songs and the Grinch.  :)  Merry Christmas
