Kelly Clarkson is a Christmas savior. In fact, Kelly Clarkson is the Christmas savior.
Kelly has saved Christmas on many on occasion and you were probably too blind to notice. Don’t let Mariah Carey fool you, folks. There’s more to the season than “All I Want For Christmas Is You” and that upcoming Hallmark Christmas movie that’s sure to flop. The sooner you figure that out, the better.
Kelly is the real bearer of the season’s yuletide cheer and we have six reasons why. Recognize, bow down, genuflect, whatever you have to do ’cause Kelly’s about to look a whole lot like Jesus.
Here are all of the times your fave saved Christmas.
Her Game of Thrones-themed Christmas card
Props to Kelly and the fam for (1) coming up with a creative Christmas card that isn’t an awkward family vacation photo, (2) following through with it and (3) getting it out on time. Seriously. The struggle to plan out an actual Christmas card as opposed to a Christmas emoji-filled text is real.
When she spent Christmas with Phineas and Ferb
Kelly brought the yuletide spirit to the third season of Phineas and Ferb, thus declaring herself a literal Christmas savior. I mean, if not Kelly then who? Mariah Carey? Ha! Yeah right. Mariah shut that shit down real quick.

Kelly put on an hour-long show for NBC back in December of 2013. She gave it her all, wearing crimson red dresses all night long, singing her heart out and spreading comfort and joy via television screens across America.
This version of “Silent Night”
Kelly brought Trishia Yearwood and Reba McEntire out during her 2013 NBC Christmas special for this blessed, harmonious rendition of a Christmas tune favorite. The trio’s version of “Silent Night” is actually taken from Kelly’s Christmas LP. Speaking of which…
Hello! Her Christmas album?!
Wrapped in Red, anyone? If you don’t LOVE Christmas albums, you have no soul. Kelly released hers back in October of 2013. It’s 14 songs of holiday slay and “Underneath The Tree” is gold. Pure gold.
