Play some Christmas carols and get in the holiday spirit! Take a musical vacation this holiday season to the beautiful Island of Hawaii. Not everyone experiences cold and snowy winters, especially not those on a warm and sunny island!

Mele Kalikimaka is a jazzy Christmas carol made famous by singer Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters. This tune paints a different picture from the traditional icy holidays cozied up by a fireplace. Whether you are bundled up under a blanket or enjoying your holiday with toes int he sand, we hope to share the joy of music with you this year!

C
Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
         C7                                       G7
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day

That's the island greeting that we send to you
                                                  C
From the land where palm trees sway
C7                                                        F
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
A7                                                       D7         G7
The sun to shine by day, and all the stars at night
C                   A7           Dm         G7                                       C
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii's way to say Merry Christmas to you
