31 Days of Christmas Music: Day 8

Hi! It's Jilly. It's Day 8 of the 31 Days of Christmas Music!

We're listening to two different versions of the same song today, All I Want For Christmas Is You. Each of them bring back vastly different memories for me. 

The Mariah Carey version takes me back to dances in college 10+ years ago. I can picture my friends and I having a blast dancing to this song, and it makes me feel happy inside.

The Michael Buble version makes me feel kind of sad. Last year my husband was gone on rotations for school all of October and November. He missed Halloween. He missed Thanksgiving. It was hard being a single parent of three six-year-olds for two months! So, whenever I heard this song my heart ached for him to be home. It was true...all I wanted for Christmas was my husband back!!

Which version is your favorite?
