This week’s theme is  season.”

In the spirit of the season, I have to go with Christmas songs!

In the 2000 live-action movie,  How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Cindy Lou Who sings the song Christmas, Why Can’t I find You? co-written by James Horner, Will Jennings and Mariah Carey.

They wrote a longer version of the song called Where Are You, Christmas?

The song was originally recorded by Carey, but because of a legal case with her ex-husband Tommy Mottola, it could not be released, so it was re-recorded and released by Faith Hill. A video was released featuring Hill singing from the Grinch’s mountaintop home, interspersed with clips from the film.

It’s been an annual Christmas favorite of my family ever since!

Enjoy!

Where Are You, Christmas?

by Faith Hill
Songwriters: James Horner, Will Jennings and Mariah Carey
Oh, hmm
Where are you Christmas
Why can’t I find you
Why have you gone away
Where is the laughter
You used to bring me
Why can’t I hear music play
My world is changing
I’m rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too
Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I’m not the same one
See what the time’s done
Is that why you have let me go
Christmas is here
Everywhere, oh
Christmas is here
If you care, oh
If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time
Oh, I feel you Christmas
I know I’ve found you
You never fade away, oh
The joy of Christmas
Stays here inside us
Fills each and every heart with love
Where are you Christmas
Fill your heart with love
