Christmas time is near!! This song might be old, but every Christmas it is my jam. This song is basically Mariah Carrie's Christmas wish. For her, Christmas does not have any meaning without this one special person in her life. So for Christmas, the only thing she asks for is this person. Now from what I understand, this doesn't necessarily have to be a romantic interest. I think that one person could be a family member, or maybe just family as a whole. This can be interpreted differently according to the most special person in your own life.
