Editor's note: This story was originally published Dec. 19, 2017. We're bringing it back today because December is here, and it's time to play those holiday tunes!

Elizabeth Chan's seventh album, "Best Gift Ever," was released Oct. 12.

NEW YORK (CIRCA) - Six years ago, Elizabeth Chan quit her lucrative media job to write Christmas music year-round.

Yes, people told her she was crazy. But it was her dream, her Christmas wish.

She just released her sixth album. How's that for crazy?

Chan grew up in New York City and the way the city transforms during the holidays played a huge role in her decision to stop being miserable all day in a job she didn't like.

It didn't happen overnight, but her days are now filled with lots of jingle bells.

You can regularly find Chan's work nestled among the huge holiday hit-makers in Apple Music and SiriusXM playlists, and on the Billboard charts.

Her chart success all began with a song she wrote for Kelly Clarkson that didn't make the O.G. "American Idol" alum's album. At the urging of her family and friends, she recorded "Fa La La" herself.

To hear her talk about Christmas, it makes perfect sense. Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year; we hear that in songs all time. So, why wouldn't someone whose fondest memories revolve around the holiday want it to be Christmas all day, every single day?
