All I Want for Christmas

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

I don’t want a lot for Christmas
There is just one thing I need
And I don’t care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree

I don’t need to hang my stocking
There upon the fireplace
Santa Claus won’t make me happy
With a toy on Christmas day

I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is you

From Mariah Carey’s All I Want for Christmas is You.  You can hear it on YouTube here.

This is one of my favorite Christmas songs, it always makes me think of Love Actually and what I love about Christmas.  While I love that it talks about Santa and presents and is sung in a way that speaks to the joys of Christmas, I really love the message that it shares.

When it all comes down to it, Christmas is all about people: the person of Santa, the persons of Elves, the persons of Jesus, Mary and Joseph, the person you’re gifting to, and you.

So if you find yourself getting caught up in the glitz, panic, craze or pushiness that can occur this time of year, stop a moment and remember that Christmas is really about people.

Who are you glad you have in your life this Christmas?
