It was bound to happen given how many memes popped up comparing him to Jon Snow and even Santa himself. But among the many songs that have been flooding your ears since the -Ber months started, “Christmas in Our Hearts” is apparently also in our search boxes.
In an interview, Chan explains the appeal behind his forever-hit song. "The secret of Christmas songs that endure is that it appeals to all ages. A good marriage of words and music. The lyrics and melodies are compatible, easy to the ear and they carry the message of Christmas," he says.
While it was released almost three decades ago, the song will definitely still be a top hit every time Christmas (or September, to be exact) comes around.
