“I started thinking, ‘What are some of the things I think about on Christmas day?’ The lights, the presents, stockings, fire places,” Carey explained. “I’ve always loved Christmas so much in my entire life, but I grew up not having a lot of money and not be able to experience it the same way as other children do.

“I just wanted Christmas to be perfect, but for a variety of reasons, it does not always work well, if you come from such a dysfunctional family,” she added. “So, I’m thinking that when I wrote it, I’m putting every ounce of longing for that perfect moment.”
