It's that time of the year, the Christmas songs take over the airwaves and it doesn't matter if they were from 30 years or three years ago, we just can't stop singing along

Now, one question that is always on our lips is, just how much do the artists get from their ever-popular Christmas songs, such as Mariah Carey's age-old classic, All I Want For Christmas Is You?

Well, we could have all guessed that Mariah's release will make her a huge amount of money every year, but just how much? According to PrezzyBox, Mariah has already earned around £625,314.00 in royalties this year, not bad for a song that was originally released in 1994, and co-written by Mariah and Walter Afanasief.
