Mariah Carey never set out to make Christmas “her holiday”.

The All I Want For Christmas Is You hitmaker admitted, while she’s become synonymous with the festive season, she was never trying to capitalise on anything as she instead just wanted to celebrate however she could.

Appearing on the On with Mario Lopez podcast, she said: “I never said like, ‘This is gonna be my holiday’. I just wrote this song, All I Want For Christmas Is You , and, as the years went by, it started to permeate the culture in its own way.

“I used to sit there and listen to it and really critique it, like, ‘Ugh, why didn’t I make this part like that?’ Or, ‘Why did I do that?’

“Every year, I would do a new video or a new Christmas song because I truly love it. It’s not just ‘cause everybody’s like, ‘Oh this is the hot thing to do, do a Christmas thing’. Nobody was saying that back then.”
