Does ‘Thank U, Next’ singer, Ariana Grande, celebrate Christmas?
Although Grande is constantly working on new music, the performer does celebrate Christmas with her family. In 2013, this artist performed two songs during the Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony in New York City.
“I’m so excited to be a part of the tree lighting ceremony because I’ve watched it every single year since I was a little girl,” Grande said at the time during an interview with ScreenSlam. “It’s something that my family and I do every year.”
On Dec. 26, 2020, Grande posted Instagram pictures from her holiday spent with the caption “merry.” Those pictures featured members of her immediate family, including brother Frankie Grande, her then-boyfriend Dalton Gomez.
The year prior, the artist posted a very true to her aesthetic picture of an upside-down Christmas tree. Of course, her song “Santa Tell Me” is one of her most popular Christmas hits, earning over 530 million Spotify plays since its debut.

During the 2014 Disney Parks Frozen Christmas Day Parade, Grande performed her version of “Last Christmas” in front of Walt Disney World’s Cinderella Castle. That same year, Grande performed “Santa Tell Me” at A Very Grammy Christmas.
Of course, Grande had a cameo in the “I Wish It Was Christmas Today” remake. That skit initially debuted on Saturday Night Live and was later recreated on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
