Not The Same (Christmas) Song

Yesterday, I was with Marvin for a hefty merienda, which is a whole other story.

While we were catching up with each other and swapping stories, he told me about one Christmas party that he attended. He was actually the one who organized it but, despite that, he never knew what the group performers were planning. So, come party time, he and all the other attendees heard one song for the rest of the night: “All I Want For Christmas Is You” originally performed by Mariah Carey.

Some used only parts of it. Others used the whole song. Whichever, it was the same song for every number. My guess is that Marvin and the rest of the people at the party had enough of it in spite of the song being good.

In a way, I am grateful that I didn’t include it in the list of songs I shared with him. I could only imagine how he would’ve reacted had it been there. So, what is in my list of Christmas songs?
