To celebrate the momentous occasion, Mariah lit up the Empire State Building in New York City on Tuesday, and to top that..the song hit #1 on the Hot 100 charts, giving MeMe her 19th #1 single — the most among solo artists in history — and only the second holiday song to reach the top position, according to Billboard.

“We definitely wanted to kick it into high gear this year with the song to celebrate the 25th anniversary, but I definitely didn’t expect it to hit No. 1 two weeks before Christmas,” Mariah said to Billboard. “I just want to thank everybody. I want the world to have the best holiday ever.”
