According to a recent study by FinanceBuzz, New York's favorite holiday song is none other than "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Mariah Carey. This modern classic comes around every holiday season and has been #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the past four Christmas seasons.

"All I Want for Christmas Is You" was released in 1994 and gets everyone talking with its catchy melody. It's no wonder that this holiday song has become the go-to holiday anthem for many New Yorkers.

New Yorkers aren't alone, "All I Want for Christmas Is You" has been the  #1 most popular Christmas song in 10 different states, making it a nationwide favorite. For better or worse, "All I Want for Christmas spreads holiday cheer from coast to coast!

While "All I Want for Christmas Is You" has won the hearts of many, it has also earned the title of the most annoying Christmas song in a recent survey conducted by FinanceBuzz. It seems that this holiday toe-tapping tune, loved by so many, also has the power to divide.

Love it or loathe it, there is certainly worse things to disagree about. After all, we could be discussing  "Jingle Bells" by the Barking Dogs. Either way, this holiday classic is here to stay. What's your personal favorite holiday song?
