“Yes,” said Nicole.
“It’s Christmas time! Annoying?”
“It’s annoying, yes,” she answered. 

 “It is,” said Deandre Nance.
“Why?”
“Because it’s played every single year like 30 times a day,” he said.  

 “I can agree with that,” said Michael Keltz.
“At Christmas time? You are calling Mariah Carey annoying?”

“I will call Mariah Carey annoying at Christmas time, yes,” he said with a laugh.  

“Yes,” said one guy.
“Annoying?”
“Yes, annoying,” he said.
“She speaks highly of you.”
“I doubt it, George,” he said.

“Oh, I hate it, go ahead, tell her,” said Demond Walker, 

So why does Carey get so cursed at Christmas?

“I don’t know, I like it, I like Mariah Carey, so I guess that’s the reason I like it and they don’t like it,” said Sheila Porter.
