The lights, the trees, all the other Christmas songs — nothing gets me feeling festive quite like Mariah Carey‘s modern classic “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” a song I enjoy all year round and with particular joy this time of the year. And so Thanksgiving has come and gone, and you all have probably been brimming with holiday joy for almost a week now, but I am only just now beginning because I needed this to happen before I could begin on my festivities:
Last night, Mimi christened the season with a performance of her yule time classic at Rockefeller Center in New York. Dressed in a little and low-cut red dress (with the gloves to match!), she flitted and submitted her wishlist to Santa (“All I want is you,” duh) and, of course, she belted. And this video’s uploader makes to great points: 1. Her backup dancers are adorable, and they really dial up the cheer; 2. She looks amazing. Happy Holiday-ing!
