Receiving over 17,223,000 million streams on December 24 alone, the song always surges towards Christmastime and already held several previous single-day streaming records: “All I Want for Christmas Is You” held the top spot going into 2019, though it was usurped by Ariana Grande’s “7 Rings” in January of that year, which garnered over 15 million streams in one day. Earlier this month, it even scooped the #1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100 list.

In fact, despite the album’s yearly renaissance, “All I Want for Christmas” remains America’s best-selling Christmas song.
