HOLIDAY SONGS (ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS IS YOU)

Happy Monday, everyone!

Today is our first Daily Vitamin lesson of December. We decided to get into the holiday spirit, so this week's theme is Famous Holiday Songs. We will look at the vocabulary from different holiday songs this week.

We are beginning with the #1 Christmas song, according to Billboard Magazine: Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas Is You. This song uses an interesting preposition: UNDERNEATH

Definition: Directly under something else. 

Example 1 (from the song): And I'm just gonna keep on waiting / Underneath the mistletoe.

Example 2: All of the presents are underneath the tree. 

Example 3: We hang the stockings above the fireplace. Underneath the stockings, we put some cookies for Santa Claus. 

Underneath is similar to the preposition underUnder is used when something is directly under another thing and underneath is often used to say that something is under another thing but also covered by it. 

You can listen to the full song here:

Here are the full lyrics to the song.

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I don't need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won't make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

I won't ask for much this Christmas
I won't even wish for snow
And I, I just wanna keep on waiting
Underneath the mistletoe

I won't make a list and send it
To the North Pole for St. Nick


I won't even stay awake
To hear those magic reindeer click


Cause I just want you here tonight
Holding onto me so tight


What more can I do
Oh baby, all I want for Christmas is you


All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children's
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won't you bring me
The one I really need
Won't you please bring my baby to me, quickly
I don't want a lot for Christmas
This is all I'm asking for
I just wanna see my baby
Standing right outside my door
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
Oh Baby, all I want for Christmas is you
All I want for Christmas is you, baby


Thanks for reading! Enjoy the rest of your day.
