Carey's single climbing the charts every Christmas is such an expected part of the festive season that it's even birthed a joke that suggests the singer gets "defrosted" every Halloween, ready for Christmas again that year.

Every year around Halloween, people on social media start documenting a spike in internet searches for Carey's classic Christmas track.
'All I Want for Christmas Is You' was first released in 1994 and was co-written and co-produced by the star herself.
It remains the singer's biggest international single and has reached the top of the charts in 26 countries worldwide.
It is estimated that the single has sold more than 17 million copies across the world, making it one of the biggest-selling singles ever.
More recently, the single came second on the UK Christmas singles chart in 2017, 2018 and 2019. In 2020, 26 years after its initial release, the song topped the UK singles chart for Christmas for the first time.
Plus, it's keeping Carey in expensive festive-themed outfits. According to Priceonomics, since its release in 1994 the track has accumulated $50m in royalties.
