According to songwriter Chris Butler , the Waitresses were in the middle of a difficult tour and the Christmas song commission was "the last thing we wanted". Butler wrote the song in August that year, assembling it from assorted unused riffs. It wasn't about joy. It was something to cope with. Written while hip hop music was beginning to gain prominence, the song is "almost rapped" by vocalist Patty Donahue. The song is told from the perspective of a busy single woman adamant not to participate in the exhausting Christmas season.
She has "turned down all [her] invites" and resolves to "miss this one this year". Earlier in the year, she met an appealing gentleman at a ski shop and got his , but had no time to ask him on a date. Despite their attempts to meet in the following months, a succession of mishaps keeps them apart, from her having a debilitatingly painful sunburn to him having car trouble.
At a hour grocery store, she runs into the "guy [she's] been chasing all year", who has also forgotten to buy cranberries, bringing her Christmas "to a very happy ending". In the final refrain , she admits that she "couldn't miss this one this year". Although it did not make the charts that year, it was reissued in and reached No. Butler said that the reception was a rejuvenating gift for the band: "We do the Christmas song, forget about it and go back on the road. The next thing I know when calling back to New York is that it's all over the radio and much to our surprise it leaps over our he and hits all the cities where we're heading and all of a sudden we're back on an upswing again.
In , Guardian arts journalist Dorian Lynskey called the song "fizzing, funky dance-around-the-Christmas-tree music for Brooklyn hipsters". Sinkane , studying a Masters in composition, produced a cover for Christmas Credits and personnel adapted from "Christmas Wrapping" Vinyl liner notes.
