"I Hate Christmas" is sung by Oscar the Grouch to enumerate all the things about Christmas that upset him. The song appeared in the special, Christmas Eve on Sesame Street. It was later rewritten, but some of of the lyrics remaining, for Elmo's Christmas Countdown, where Stiller the Elf sings new verses about counting down to Christmas.
