6. Mariah’s song has many versions

  • The original track is still a favorite, but Mariah has released other Christmas versions. Her second Christmas album included a “extra-festive” rendition of the song. She recorded a duet with Justin Bieber. Although all are fantastic, the original is still the best.

7. The song reached #12 on the Billboard Hot 100

  • In 1994, “All I Want for Christmas Is You” only reached 12th on the Billboard Hot 100, proving that the ’90s generation didn’t appreciate their charm. My mistake!
