In 1994, Mariah Carey, Queen of Christmas, gifted the world with "All I Want For Christmas Is You" — which means that this year, the iconic holiday anthem turns 25!
Originally debuting on her 1994 holiday album (her first ever) Merry Christmas, "All I Want For Christmas Is You" took on a life of its own and has stood the test of time, year after year, as everyone's favorite holiday jam. In recent years, it's broken a few different records, and even achieved a Guinness World Record; the song is the highest-charting holiday song on the Billboard US Hot 100 by a solo artist and Most Weeks in the UK Singles Top 10 Chart For a Christmas Song.
Being that the song is so beloved during the holiday season and beyond, many of your favorite artists have covered the Christmas classic and/or have recorded a version with Queen Mariah herself. This song is truly the gift that keeps on giving.
