Mariah Carey is practically synonymous with the Christmas season, harkening back to her 1994 holiday hit "All I Want for Christmas is You."
Since, with that song serving as the soundtrack, Carey has stamped her name on the season with concerts, appearances, a book, a film ... and so much more.
Let us consider the lessons learned.
The holidays are a fashion opportunity
When taking a chance with a gift, pull from a master’s playbook
Christmas is all about New York City
Christmas is all about spectacle
Christmas is fun -- even if you're not a kid
Re-gifting is fine -- appreciated, even
And keep re-gifting
Christmas is Mariah's business, and business is good
