Mariah Carey Responds to Texas Bar Over Song Ban

It never fails. Right after Halloween, retail stores rush to mark down their previous holiday products to make space for Christmas décor. They turn on their holiday playlist to get shoppers in the Christmas spirit and retail employees everywhere find themselves in a never-ending loop of the same songs for two months. One of which is Mariah Carey’s iconic “All I Want For Christmas Is You”. Looking back to my retail days, I remember hearing that particular song over 20 times a shift.

A bar in Texas was as over it as most of us probably are. A note was tapped on the Jukebox stating that “All I Want For Christmas Is You” will be skipped before December 1st and played only one time a night after.

The tweet of the jukebox note eventually caught Ms. Carey’s attention which she then responds with a picture of her ready for war.
