Two music videos were commissioned for the song, both being filmed during the month of December 1993. The song's primary music video features grainy home footage of Carey, her dogs and family during the holiday season, as well as Carey dressed in a Santa suit frolicking on a snowy mountainside. Then husband Tommy Mottola makes a cameo appearance as Santa Claus, bringing Carey a gift and leaving on a red sleigh. The second video was filmed in black and white format, and features Carey dressed in 1960s style, while paying homage to The Ronettes, alongside back up singers and male dancers.
Carey performed "All I Want for Christmas is You" during a slew of live television appearances and tours throughout her career. She first sang it live during the Japanese leg of her Daydream World Tour, Butterfly World Tour and Charmbracelet World Tour, as well as the Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade in 2004 and 2010, both of which aired on ABC. A So So Def remix version was released in 2000, and a dance mix in 2009. In 2010, Carey re-recorded the song for her second holiday album, Merry Christmas II You, titled "All I Want for Christmas Is You". In 2011, Carey re-recorded the song as duet with Justin Bieber, entitled "All I Want for Christmas for You". The song has also been covered by an endless list of artists over the years, including Shania Twain, Lady Antebellum, The Cheetah Girls, and John Mayer.
