Anitta had one big Christmas wish this year -- and it apparently came true thanks to a huge surprise in snowy Aspen.

The Brazilian pop star was shopping in the luxurious destination when she encountered none other than the Queen of Christmas herself, Mariah Carey. Carey heads to Aspen for the holidays each year, and was more than happy to catch up with Anitta, who's a massive fan, when they ran into each other in the same boutique.

Immediately shocked and overwhelmed, Anitta starts sobbing and can barely find the words when Carey takes her hand. "All I wanted for Christmas was that!" she gushed. "This is the best day of my life!"

This was a huge deal for Anitta, who then took to Instagram to share exactly why this was such a significant moment: she's been a life-long, vocal fan of Carey's, so it's safe to say that this was a life-changing surprise for her.
