Miss You Most At Christmas Time

Posted by : foongpc | Monday, December 7, 2009 | Published in


It's that time of the year again! Yes, I'm talking about the Christmas season!

Walking in a shopping mall yesterday, I was suddenly hit with this song playing in the background. I recognised it almost instantly as it is one of my favourite Christmas songs of all time!

The song, which was a little sad for such a festive season, nevertheless got me into the Christmassy mood.

And as I listened to the beautiful voice of my idol Mariah Carey singing those sad lyrics, I could not help but be transported into a world of white Christmas complete with images of snowflakes and Santa Claus and silver bells and the feeling of warmness of the fireplace and sound of carolers singing in the distance.

So for today, despite it being a Monday and most of you are probably suffering from Monday blues, I would like to share this song with all of you.

This song is called "Miss You Most At Christmas Time" and is probably the kind of song all ex-Mariah fans would want her to sing nowadays! Enjoy....

The fire is burning
The room's all aglow
Outside the December wind blows
Away in the distance the carolers sing in the snow
Everybody's laughing
The world is celebrating
And everyone's so happy
Except for me tonight

Because I miss you
Most at Christmas time
And I can't get you
Get you off my mind
Every other season comes along
And I'm all right
But then I miss you, most at Christmas time

I gaze out the window
This cold winter's night
At all of the twinkling lights
Alone in the darkness
Remembering when you were mine
Everybody's smiling
The whole world is rejoicing
And everyone's embracing
Except for you and I

Baby I miss you
Most at Christmas time
And I can't get you
Get you off my mind
Every other season comes along
And I'm all right
But then I miss you, most at Christmas time

In the springtime those memories start to fade
With the April rain
Through the summer days
Till autumn's leaves are gone
I get by without you
Till the snow begins to fall

And then I miss you
Most at Christmas time
And I can't get you
Get you off my mind
Every other season comes along
And I'm all right...
But then I miss you, most at Christmas time

So who do you miss most at Christmas time?

    I saw the Christmas decor briefly when I was at the Mid Valley mall last week but somehow, the atmosphere (and decor) wasn't as nice as last year's.

    foongpc ~ ref to your question on compressing picture:
    Goto to picture
    [Right click]
    click [Open With]
    click [Microsoft Office Picture Manager]
    click [Picture]
    click [Compress Pictures]
    tick [Web Pages]
    click [OK]

    Note: On the lower right hand side shall see the "Estimated total size" showing the "Original" & "Compressed". Sometimes the 'Compressed' size can be larger than the 'Original' then don't compress. Compressed pic may not be as sharp as the original but you certainly save lots of space and that could fasten the uploading speed. Advisable to make a copy of the original before compressing just in case you are not satisfied with the end result:) [Thanks to Pete]

    I missed my grandma most. She's in Johor but I seldom had the time to visit her.

    I should call her more.

    it's always feels good in the shopping malls during the x'mas season.

  20. lina said...

    I think malls cutting cost and just recycle previous year's materials instead of coming up with new decorations. I agree with Mei Teng, MV decir not so nice as last year. :D

    I was at Ikea on Sat but no Xmas carols yet. Strange..

  35. foongpc said...

    feed your mind, yes I like her song "All I Want For Christmas" too. It is one of the most successful Christmas songs in the world! I think a lot of singers covered it too like John Mayer, Shania Twain, Samantha Mumba and Miley Cyrus : )

    bluedreamer27, don't worry, blue. It's OK to make mistakes in life - I do it all the time! The most important thing is we learn from it, yes? : )

    December 7, 2009 at 9:58 PM
  37. foongpc said...

    cheahs@n, thanks for the detailed guide! I will try it! But you want to compress just to save space? So it will affect picture quality and sharpness?

    Yeah, setting the Xmas mood early so I can enjoy one whole month of the Xmas ambience! LOL!

    December 7, 2009 at 10:01 PM
  38. foongpc said...

    mom's corner, you are welcome. Oh! I love Vision of Love and especially My All! They are considered Mariah's top songs! : )

    shingo T, yes why don't you start calling her today? And do go visit her! : )

    cheahs@n, yes I'm aware of the other functions but not aware of the compression thing. Thanks, yes? : )

    reanaclaire, it's a sad song right? I feel like wanting to cry listening to this actually, but it does bring back memories : )

    December 7, 2009 at 10:05 PM
  42. foongpc said...

    merryn, who are you missing? Sorry about the sad song! For happier songs, just go to the shopping mall and listen to all the happy Christmas songs! : )

    December 7, 2009 at 10:07 PM

    gabriel, Merry Christmas to you too! No special plans - maybe just "lepak" around and enjoy the Christmas mood : )

    December 7, 2009 at 10:11 PM
  48. foongpc said...

    xin, actually me too! But I've since learnt to like her new songs, so it's all fine : )

    happysurfer, Yes the one in 1Utama is not bad. Haven't seen the one in Pavilion. Hope to visit Pavilion soon! No Xmas carols in Ikea? Maybe it's still too early? : )

    Yeah, this is indeed a sad song, and I simply love the way Mariah sang it. Totally one of the trademark songs : )

    Ooo.. The song that brings tears to my eyes is "I'll Be Home For Christmas". It's the song I remember when I was on my way back from UK to M'sia for my 2 week break. That time, I was home sick and so, was very happy to go home for that short break.
