LISTEN: Mariah Carey’s Newest Christmas Song


Could this be the tune that finally tops a holiday song – released 16 years ago?

Later this fall, will follow up Merry Christmas, her album from 1994, with a festive sequel.

Although “Oh Santa!,” the first track from Merry Christmas II You, won’t likely reach classic status like the single “All I Want For Christmas Is You” did, it’s still pretty fun to listen to.

At the very least, the tune is definitely worthy of a Gap commercial.

The new holiday album will hit stores on November 2.

No worries there. Boyle - or at least, Boyle’s management - is likely to be interested. has already lined up big guest stars over its successful first season, and it’s the most buzzworthy new show of the year.

If I find some free time in London, I would like to buy furniture and accessories. I’ve heard that there are great ones in the Portobello Road antique shops. “

Taylor also revealed that her father - who was once a Christmas tree salesman - loved the festive time of year so much, that the whole family went overboard decorating the house every year: “Christmas here at home is always a big celebration. Each room is decorated; I’m looking forward to it.”

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: GPS, Transportation,

Plan on being in the car with the little ones on Christmas Eve? If so, are you an subscriber?

Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer Returns

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: DVD, Reviews, Television,

Santa And RudolphI love the old Rankin-Bass holiday classics, but my favorite is Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer. It used to be appointment TV, but then along came DVD and the ability to watch it anytime.

Now that I have kids, we watch it pretty much year-round. In 2009 so far, I’ve racked up at least 20 viewings. And when you watch something that many times, you start to notice some things that escaped me when I would just see it once a year. Here’s my list:

Mrs. Claus: She’s a chubby chaser and an enabler. Santa finally gets his weight down during the off-season - which no doubt would help his cholesterol and blood pressure and help him live longer - and yet she can’t wait to start stuffing him again, upping the ante by reminding him that everyone loves a fat Santa, including her I’m guessing.

Santa Claus: First off, he’s a jerk. Rudolph is a super-achiever compared to the others in the Reindeer Games, and Santa’s too worried about the red nose thing. Since no one on Santa’s route will ever actually see Rudolph, this is really all about Santa’s issues.

Jon Gosselin Says Everyone Will Be at Christmas Dinner

Jon Gosselin and half of his clanReality TV’s favorite, loving father Jon Gosselin took some time out to actually talk about upcoming holiday plans.

While he claims that he’ll only spend half of Thanksgiving with the kids, Christmas is another story: “Christmas Eve and Christmas day are joint-shared custody days, which means we’re both in the house. So we’ll be there.” What a field day for the media! Imagine if they had a veritable inside man to infiltrate… Oh wait, they have a reality show! Let’s hope that TLC manages to ink some kind of deal with Jon for this special occasion.

He also lamented about his lack of gift wrapping skills: “Oh my goodness, doesn’t your back hurt so much? And why do we sit on the floor and reach over, you can never reach the end of the wrapping paper, you need monkey arms, it’s annoying. Nothing ever matches up.”

No wonder Kate was angry at him all the time—imagine wrapping presents for eight kids all by yourself? Yeah, my thoughts exactly.
