Mariah Carey's 'All I Want for Christmas' is no longer most-played Christmas song

Christmas is almost here, and that means it's time to make gingerbread houses, put presents under the tree and hear Mariah Carey's classic holiday hit, "All I Want for Christmas is You," play again and again — and again.

But maybe not quite as many times as we've heard it in years past.

According to the folks at PlayNetwork, who compile the seasonal playlists for hundreds of retailers, there's another song-of-the-season that's pushed Carey's 1994 carol from its top spot.
