And it really shouldn't be.

Haters gon' hate, even during the holidays.

Chris Brown's "This Christmas" — originally recorded by Donny Hathaway in 1970 — is one of the five of the least liked holiday songs in the U.S., according to AccuRadio.
The full list consists of The Chipmunks' "Christmas Don’t Be Late,"  Rosemary Clooney's "(Let’s Give) a Christmas Present to Santa Claus," Enya's "My! My! Time Flies!" and Snoop Dogg's "New Year’s Eve."

Breezy's rendition is featured on the soundtrack to  the 1997 holiday film of the same name, which he also stars in. While the song has been covered countless of times, from Christina Aguilera, Destiny's Child, Mary J. Blige, Lady Antebellum, and more, I personally think Chris Brown has one of the best covers of the song.

The Business of Holiday Music

The top five most popular holiday songs in the U.S., according to AccuRadio, include classics like Bing Crosby's "It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas," Brenda Lee's "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree," Bobby Helms' "Jingle Bell Rock," Burl Ives' "A Holly jolly Christmas" and Nat King Cole's "The Christmas Song."

AccuRadio also listed the states with the most Christmas spirit (Washington, D.C.) and the least (New Jersey). Check out more on AccuRadio.
