It’s officially the holiday season now that Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” is back on the charts

As soon as Mariah Carey declared that “it’s time” for Christmas, her well-known holiday hit, “All I Want For Christmas Is You” or AIWFCIY returned to the top of the charts.

“All I Want For Christmas Is You”, the singer’s 1994 classic, has been forced to spend the year in hibernation to allow for other events such as Easter and Halloween. 

However, it’s now reportedly reclaimed its rightful place on the charts after re-entering the countdown in the US.

It comes hours after Mariah cut the ribbon on the festive season as soon as the clock struck midnight on November 1, ending the spooky season. 

A video shared on social media opens with the Grammy-winning singer dressed as a witch and cackling away while riding a static exercise bike against a backdrop of a dark forest filled with glowing pumpkins. 

As the date is shown reaching November 1, the day after Halloween, the scene transforms to show a more festive picture.

According to Kworb, AIWFCIY has made it back into the iTunes Top 40 chart and is currently at number 26 after jumping 55 places. At the moment, it’s sandwiched in between Michael Jackson’s Thriller – which no doubt benefited off the Halloween hype – and Harry Styles’ “As It Was”.
