All I Want for Christmas is Mariah Carey memes: The best ones
Nothing says Christmas like Mariah Carey. She single-handedly changed the tone of Christmas into a love-filled celebration with her song “All I Want for Christmas is You”. Festive season officially kicks off with Halloween each year, so we wait to see if we survive our families through Thanksgiving & then wait for the cheer that’s so characteristic of Christmas.
For some, the festive zeal begins right as Halloween ends. It’s what nerds do – remember when Jess from New Girl forced everyone into the festive spirit right as the clock struck midnight on November 1, when her roommates were barely out of their Halloween costumes?

Mariah Carey seems to be a nerd, too. She tweeted out a video on Halloween where a ghoulish character goes through a creepy set, seemingly straight out of a horror movie, and opens the door that leads to Mariah. Mariah, as it turns out, is sitting all chirpy & ecstatic in a room that yells Christmas, glances at her watch, and declares “It’s time.”
Mariah, the Christmas angel
We don’t know where Mariah is when it’s not Christmas. We’ve also noticed that Christmas isn’t Christmas without her. It’s no coincidence. In fact, Christmas is so inseparable from Mariah that her iconic song still reigns.
We mean that, literally, because after 25 years of the song’s existence, it finally made it to the No. 1 spot in the Billboard Hot 100 chart in December last year. It’s – no cringe when we say this – a Christmas miracle.
You could say Mariah loves Christmas
If Christmas is incomplete without Mariah, the flip side also holds true: Mariah is incomplete without Christmas. Her passion & obsession for Christmas is reflected well in the fact that she has a literal Christmas tree up when it’s just fall season. Gotta stick to the aesthetics, baby.
Mariah: Back from the dead just in time for the festive season
Fans have a lot of theories & jokes about the whereabouts of Mariah for the remaining eleven months of the year. Here’s one of our favorites from the lot.
All I want for Christmas are the royalties
The love that the song gets during the festive season is priceless. But it doesn’t hurt to see the money coming in, either. Since its debut in 1994 album Merry Christmas, the song has reportedly earned Mariah over $60 million in royalties according to The Economist.
Mariah once mentioned of the song, “It was done very quickly and kind of came out organically, which the best songs do.” It’s certainly also paying off!
Well, it can get too much for some people
If you’ve ever worked in retail, you know how some things that seem adorable to other people – the customers, the passers-by, the visitors – are actually extremely monotonous if you’ve to go through the routine day in & day out, each day of the week. Now imagine listening to a song 24 hours in a day because the customers like the Christmas vibes that the song emanates.
Retail workers are all for customer service, but there’s a breaking point for how many times you can hear a song on loop without losing your mind.
So, you’re saying that Christmas existed before Mariah Carey sang it into existence?
It’s just really hard to imagine a Christmas celebration without Mariah’s song on the playlist, especially if you consider that most of us weren’t even born when Mariah debuted the song.
Mariah says it’s the most wonderful time of the year, we’ve no choice but to agree.
