Charted: 15 12

Songfacts®:

  • This Phil Spector-sounding song is an optimistic tune that was written by Clarkson with her frequent collaborator, the hit songwriter/producer Greg Kurstin. The song was released as the lead single from the singer's first Christmas album, Wrapped In Red.
  • This isn't the first time that Clarkson has covered holiday music. She recorded the Christmas songs "Oh Holy Night" and "My Grown Up Christmas List" on the compilation American Idol: The Great Holiday Classics. Also, the Texas native's version of "I'll Be Home for Christmas" reached the #93 position on the Hot 100 in 2011, and she lent her voice to Blake Shelton's "Cheers, It's Christmas" the following year.
