We’re taking the day off today, so we decided to repost some of our favorite Christmas-themed posts from this and previous years.

Hopefully she attached a gift receipt with this new “gift”. First off, isn’t it a bit early to be hawking Christmas-related items. Seriously, September just ended. Secondly, I don’t know what possessed her to release another Christmas album. Her first holiday release “Merry Christmas” released in 1994, is a modern day classic. There’s no way in hell she’ll top “All I Want For Christmas Is You“.

Okay, “Oh Santa!” isn’t really that bad. It’ll probably grow on me after hearing it thousands of times on the radio and on TV. The urban-pop holiday jingle was produced by Jermaine Dupri and will be on her “Merry Christmas II You” album. Pretty clever title, considering her first festive CD was titled, “Merry Christmas”. The new album will feature four original songs, with traditional holiday tunes covers filling up the CD.

I love how the new album cover pays homage to the old one. Mariah sure does love that pose. Famed photographer, David LaChapelle, shot the new album cover. To promote her first Christmas album, Carey did a massive performance in Disneyland at the castle. I wonder what little stunt she has in store this time.
