All we want for Christmas is to hear Mariah Carey flexing her golden pipes over and over!
No one could have predicted the massive success of Mariah's beloved Christmas album. Twenty years later, we're still singing "All I Want for Christmas Is You" to get us through the holidays. In celebration, we're taking a trip down memory lane, back to 1994, when Mariah first released the album aptly named Merry Christmas.
"When you record a Christmas album, it's around for the rest of your life. It's something that people can play for years and years to come," Mariah told ET in '94. "You always hope people will like them, they'll become classics. You know, that's a dream."
