43 Things That Made Christmas in the ’90s All That

43 Things That Made Christmas in the '90s All That

We aren’t ashamed to admit that we’re obsessed with the ’90s. After all, we’re talking about a decade that gave us Tamagotchi and Clueless! And as we listen to classic holiday albums by *NSYNC and Mariah Carey this month, we’re reminded yet again of what made Christmas in the ’90s so rad. There were cheesy Christmas sweaters (worn nonironically), even cheesier pics of boy bands in Santa garb, holiday episodes of our favorite TV shows, and, of course, JTT in I’ll Be Home For Christmas. See some of the most memorable toys, music, movies, and more from the holidays in the ’90s! Read more on Tres Sugar…

This year was a big year for The Frisky in terms of music. We fell in love with A-Audio headphones and have been blasting Taylor Swift’s 1989 on Amelia’s kickass wireless speaker, so it was only appropriate to highlight the music tech we love (and want) this year.

Listen: Mariah Carey’s Live Performance Of “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” Will Make Your Ears Bleed

Listen: Mariah Carey's Live Performance Of "All I Want For Christmas Is You" Will Make Your Ears Bleed
Her Face Basically Sums Up Our Feelings

Caution: What you are about to hear, you cannot unhear. Last night, Mariah Carey took the stage at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony in NYC, and sang her hit “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” Needless to say, she killed in…in the WORST WAY POSSIBLE. Like, she actually butchered the hell out of her own holiday classic. The Concourse released an unedited edition of the performance (above), which isolates Mariah’s vocals, and consequently made our ears bleed.

Mariah had it coming, though. The notorious diva was three hours late to the show’s taping on Tuesday night, and was asked to leave. NBC allegedly told Mariah that the only way she could perform at the ceremony is if she sang it live on Wednesday night. So she did…and then this trainwreck happened and crushed our Christmas spirit.
