"I don't care about presents underneath the Christmas Tree. I just want you for my own, more than you could ever know. Make my wish come true. All I want for Christmas is you."

And hope through it all that Santa brings her the one gift she's asked for.

"Oh, all the lights are shining so brightly everywhere. And the sound of children's laughter fills the air."

Mariah says, "When I wrote 'All I Want for Christmas Is You' it was my dream for it to become a classic."
