Though its one of the greatest Christmas albums of all time, this is my favorite. Mariah really delivers with her latest multi-platinum record, she could possibly be identified as the embodiment of the holiday. Mariah has stated she is quite the festive spirit, and she proves herself here. Her vocals are flawless and in perfect harmony with the holiday joy. The style of singing in this great album has a certain classic taste to it. "All I Want For Christmas Is You" had been thought to be a covered classic, but many were surprised to find Mariah Carey (who writes her own material) & once long-time close friend Walter Afanasieff wrote the song.
