The Essential Advent Calendar: Merry Christmas! Jedward Inspire Us To ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ As We Go Into The New Year And Decade

We’ve had The Essential Advent Calendar for a few years now and usually when it comes to December 25 we summarise the songs we’ve featured over advent. This year is going to be different. It’s the end of the decade. When we go back to reality after the Christmas/New Year period, and work out how to remember how to write the date, it’s no longer going to be the 20-teens, we’ll have entered the 2020s. And ultimately, it’s up to us to decide whether it’s going to be a time of prosperity and positivity or not: will we have a Roaring 2020s, or will we just go along with whatever is given to us, accepting it as our lot in life, no matter how miserable it makes us feel?

All Mariah Carey Wants Is You – Especially If You’re A Christmas Number 1

It’s almost inconceivable to think that Mariah Carey’s perennial favourite, ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ is 25 years old this year. Almost as hard to believe is that the song has never made it beyond the number 3 spot (2018) on the Billboard Hot 100 charts – until now.
