Composed by Danny Elfman, it features a lively beat with jangling guitar chords and playful percussion that sets the festive mood. The song is written in the key of E♭ major and C minor, and consists of 83 measures. The lyrics explore the timeless themes of Christmas, from anticipation and joy to the magic of family and friends. The chorus culminates in the repeated line, “this is Halloween, this is Christmas Day,” a nod to the film’s central conflict between the two holidays. Pentatonix’s unique and energetic take on this holiday classic will make it a surefire Christmas staple.
