In high school one of our best girls worked at a coffee shop where they pre-programmed one of those mondo 25 CD players. When pumpkin spice/candy cane latte season kicked in, she had to play and listen to the original Mariah holiday album a couple times every day. After three weeks she stole the disc and hid it in her car. This doesn’t mean that we don’t have lots of positive Mariah winter time memories. Last night we made some more, when ABC aired the Mariah Carey: Merry Christmas To You holiday special MC taped a month ago in Los Angeles. Onstage, Mimi paraded a succession of modest teddy’s bowed above her growing baby bump and sang songs from her second Christmas album, Merry Christmas II You. See our in-conversation blitz sportscast recap and a classic video from 1994′s Merry Christmas, after the jump.
