Each of these songs was written within one day this December for an Advent Calendar chiptune event on Battle of the Bits! There was a different prompt each day as well as a different format (such as what software to use or what old soundchip to write for). They are listed below.

This is my third year doing the event, and my second year participating in every day. It has become something I look forward to greatly. I didn't post last year's compilation here on Bandcamp, but it is on SoundCloud:

I hope you enjoy all these varied little tunes! Happy holidays!
