Spotify released the data for the most streamed Christmas songs of all-time and Mariah Carey’s “All I Want For Christmas Is You” still reigns supreme.
“What strikes me most about the list is it shows how much listeners still love the classics year after year, but are also embracing the newer music that comes along,” Spotify Head of Global Culture and Trends Communication Shanon Cook wrote in an email to the “Today” show.

I love everything about this list. The only song I can thing of that is a classic, but not on here is “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.” Everyone loves that little tune. “Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer is also not on this list. What a shame.
