Sophomore Eldridge Etienne, a secondary education and English major, expressed her joy for holiday music and the holiday cheer.
“’All I Want For Christmas Is You’ by Mariah Carey is my favorite holiday song because it is a classic and puts me in a good mood,” Etienne said. “It’s important to stay in a cheerful mood around the holidays because it is the greatest time of year.”
Sophomore and elementary education and speech pathology major, Marisa Samuel, said “My favorite holiday song is ‘The Christmas Shoes’ by Newsong because it tells a story about a little boy who’s trying to get shoes for his mother who is sick, which the holidays are about. It’s about getting presents for those we love and for those who deserve to be spoiled.”
