Moreover, the competition for the Mariah’s song was very tough. She is ahead from 22 other Christmas song top 40 of this week. There are almost six Christmas songs which are in top 10. So it really a tough fight between everyone. Certainly, it was not Mariah’s luck but her song itself.
Above all, Mariah herself was a co-writer and a co-producer of the song. She did everything along with Walter Afanasieff. She still include it in her life performances. The song still really mean a lot to 51 year old singer.
