It’s been a tough almost two years since the pandemic began, especially around the holidays. Thankfully, the vaccine rollout and recently approved boosters have given people hope for a little more normalcy this season. Since Jimmy Fallon always releases a holiday bop this time of year, he recognized the perfect opportunity for a pandemic-themed Christmas song and absolutely nailed it!

Featuring superstars Ariana Grande and Megan Thee Stallion, this super-catchy song does a pretty great job recalling some of the many struggles of living through a pandemic, from wearing masks to putting hand sanitizer on just about anything and everything. It’s super silly, of course, but we still think it’s an incredible nod to the struggles we’ve been facing.
