September 24, 2019

We know it’s the first week of fall, but plans are already underway for Christmas. You might have your sweaters still packed away, but Mariah Carey is out here making moves.

It’s been 25 years since Mariah Carey first gave us the gift of Christmas music, and nothing has ever been the same. Her Merry Christmas album arrived on October 28, 1994 and features the modern classic, “All I Want For Christmas Is You.” It’s one of the 15 biggest-selling singles of all time in any season, and is of course the most successful Christmas song by any female artist ever. It’s the stuff movies are made of, literally, and one of the most enduring songs of all time.

Now on the 25th anniversary, Carey has revealed plans for a deluxe celebration of her first Christmas album.

“’Merry Christmas’ is turning 25 and I’m celebrating by releasing a very special 2 CD Deluxe Anniversary Edition on November 1st featuring, for the first time ever, my St. John The Divine performance and more!” she wrote on Instagram Monday. Pre-orders for the album are now available, along with new sweatshirts, hats, and stockings to celebrate the anniversary.

Starting in November, Mariah will play 5 special All I Want For Christmas Is You Las Vegas shows, taking up residency at The Colosseum in Caesars Palace. You can find the full list of dates here.
