2 Days Left Until Christmas (Happy Festivus!)

At the North Pole:

The North Pole is only one day away from the Christmas flight!  And that means all the toys and presents are being put into Santa’s magical sack.  Santa’s sleigh is going through last-minute checks to make sure it will fly properly.  And Santa’s reindeer are being fed one huge meal so they will have the energy to fly for 24 hours.  Santa and the elves are excited to see Christmas come!

Christmas Song:

All I Want For Christmas Is You is a song written by American singer-songwriter Mariah Carey and Walter Afanasieff, and recorded by Carey.  It was released by Columbia Records on November 1, 1994 as the lead single from her fourth studio album, Merry Christmas.  An uptempo love song, the instrumentation includes bell chimes and heavy back-up vocals, as well as use of synthesizers.  When Mariah Carey teamed up with Jimmy Fallon, this version of the song became a huge Christmas favorite!
