The holiday season is a time to host the ones you love and indulge shamelessly in holly jolly tunes while eating gingerbread cookies and sipping on eggnog—AKA the most wonderful time of the year. And this yuletide season wouldn't be complete without the catchy (and quite frankly inescapable) Mariah Carey hit, 'All I Want For Christmas Is You.' Though the song has been around since 1994, it has never quite topped the charts in the US. That's all changed in 2019, as the song has finally broken the 25-year streak, becoming the number one song on the Billboard Hot 100 this Christmas season.
