It's Christmas-ney, bitch.

Posted on

When someone hears the phrase "most iconic Christmas song of all time," they often mistakenly associate it with Mariah Carey's pretty OK holiday number, "All I Want For Christmas Is You."

That's right, we're talking about Britney Spears' iconic 2000 avant-garde holiday banger, "My Only Wish (This Year)."

Upon its release, "My Only Wish" received mixed critical reviews from joy-fearing Scrooges/hate-mongering Xtina stans and peaked at #49 on Billboard's Holiday Songs Chart in 2010.

The lyrics aren't just hella festive, but they're also poignant AF.

Last night I took a walk in the snow
Couples holding hands, places to go
Seems like everyone but me is in love
Santa, can you hear me?

So while family and friends are important and stuff, this holiday season, be sure to remember the true reason for the season.

  1. So, is "My Only Wish (This Year)" the best holiday song of all time?

    Yes, Godney's classic reigns supreme!
    Eh, I don't really enjoy music or happiness in general.
