Songfacts®:

  • This self-penned holiday single finds Ariana Grande singing of feeling let down by Santa as he didn't grant her Christmas wish. She said during a live stream Q&A with Arianators the song is, "sort of about being fed up with Santa because he doesn't necessarily pull through all the time."
  • This was Ariana's second holiday release following her 2013 Christmas Kisses EP. That record contained two original songs: "Love Is Everything" and "Snow In California" as well as a couple of covers.
  • Ariana performed the song for the first time on November 18, 2014 at the A Very Grammy Christmas concert in the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
