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."
And while that song is festive and all, it doesn't really come close to ~sleighing~ in the way that another underrated holiday classic does.
That's right, we're talking about Britney Spears' iconic 2000 avant-garde holiday banger, "My Only Wish (This Year)."
Sure, a lot of people "like" the song, but it never seemed to garner the fervent adoration/worship/off-brand religious sect it duly deserves.
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.
But the cold, hard, snow-covered truth is that "My Only Wish" is literally the best Christmas song of all time, and it's about time we recognized it.
The beat is spectacular.
The lyrics aren't just hella festive, but they're also poignant AF.
And, yes, Brit is even credited as a co-author.
Simply put, "My Only Wish (This Year)" is a true American/South Korean holiday classic.
So while family and friends are important and stuff, this holiday season, be sure to remember the true reason for the season.
