"Christmas, Why Can't I Find You?" is a song co-written by James Horner and Will Jennings for the movie How the Grinch Stole Christmas in 2000. In the movie, it is first sung by Taylor Momsen, who played Cindy Lou Who.
A full-length version of the song, was renamed "Where Are You, Christmas?". This version was co-written by Horner, Jennings and Mariah Carey with additional lyrics for the film's soundtrack. The song was originally recorded by Carey, but because of a legal case with her ex-husband Tommy Mottola, it could not be released, so it was re-recorded and released by Faith Hill. A video was released featuring Hill singing from the Grinch's mountaintop home, interspersed with clips from the film and a cameo appearance by Taylor Momsen as Cindy Lou Who.
As of December 2018, total digital sales of the Faith Hill recording had reached 977,000 downloads according to Nielsen SoundScan. It was placed seventh on the list of all-time best-selling Christmas/holiday digital singles in SoundScan history.
