It's also extremely hard for original Christmas songs to catch on yearly, if at all. Underneath the Tree is one of the very, very few that has managed to re-peak in popularity each year. So many artists try and can't do it, and Kelly actually did it.
That's why I find the whole situation so frustrating. Instead of pushing it further and properly cementing its status as a new holiday classic (and getting another Top 10 in the process), she pushes fifteen other songs instead, songs that do not and will never have 1/10th of the popularity that Underneath the Tree currently has. I didn't need any more reasons to hate her move to Atlantic but I guess I have another one now!
Anyway I promise I'll shut up about this if it manages to hit the Top 10 this year.
