Thank you so much Guinness World Records for honoring me with three records in the 2020 book! Michael from @guinnessworldrecords presented me with a certificate on stage, so naturally, I asked him to join us for the #AllIWantForChristmasIsYou finale! 😉🎅💝 📸 Denise Truscello
The song broke the record for being the highest-charting holiday (Christmas/New Year) song on the Billboard US Hot 100 by a solo artist.
Among other records it also spent most weeks in the UK singles Top 10 chart for a Christmas song. As a female artist it is the most streamed track on Spotify in 24 hours.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan she took a look back at the 25 years since the song's debut and reveals how she came up with the melodies, she says:
"I just sat down, decorated a little tree and put on It's A Wonderful Life and tried to get into that mood…I was going over all the things I think about at Christmas time that make me happy and how to turn it around and make it into a love song."
Making time to unwind during one of her busiest seasons, Mariah spent Thanksgiving with her blended family.
According to PEOPLE, she celebrated the holiday with a dinner party for family friends, which included her two children, Moroccan and Monroe, along with ex-husband, Nick Cannon, and her boyfriend, Bryan Tanaka.
Mariah, who admits that Christmas is the one season that fulfills her for the rest of the year, she lists a few of her essentials for the holiday.
Topping the list of her Christmas essentials is spending time with family. A few of the items include being surrounded by snow, making food from family recipes, baking, her Christmas playlist, and despite her love for diamonds, she says Christmas is the season for rubies.
