Merry Christmas was released in 1994, and 16 years later Mariah Carey delivers a sequel, appropriately titled Merry Christmas II You and also featuring the diva in a sexy little Santa suit. The similarities don’t end there, either: Mariah revives her original seasonal tune “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and often touches upon the classy, clean updated traditional vibe of her readings from the 1994 set. Underneath this surface, Merry Christmas II You has a different vibe than its predecessor, derived in large part from the numerous originals here.

I have this touched-in-the-head Facebook friend who celebrates Christmas three, maybe four, times a year—and no more emphatically than during the three months leading up to the real Christmas. As I write this, I see that he has gone ahead and trimmed a two-story tree while the rest of the country tricks and treats. I consider it a pointed gesture, an act of chronological elision of paganism from one of the few strident Christians I haven't blocked from my feed.

Be you in the car or the shopping centre, at work or play, in Britain or Bermuda: someone, close by, will be playing All I Want for Christmas Is You. Mariah Carey’s contribution to the festive season’s slew of ubiquitous-for-two-months singles was originally released back in 1994 – today, it’s her biggest-selling single in the UK, and regularly appears in charts the world over come the year’s end.
