In an interview with Cosmopolitan she took a look back at the 25 years since the song's debut and reveals how she came up with the melodies, she says:

"I just sat down, decorated a little tree and put on It's A Wonderful Life and tried to get into that mood…I was going over all the things I think about at Christmas time that make me happy and how to turn it around and make it into a love song."
