Ariana Grande wrote and recorded this modern Christmas favourite in 2004. That year, she did not plan to do a Christmas album but changed her mind halfway. And thank goodness she did, or else Christmas just wouldn't feel complete! The music video was even filmed in her house in LA!
2. "Mistletoe" by Justin Bieber
Justin Bieber released this adorable song about pursuing his love interest over the Christmas holidays. He recorded it as a young 17-year-old teen, warming up the hearts of fangirls everywhere then! It has since become a classic, one that you can never miss.
