Bingo! My very favorite Christmas Carol

holiday resort in thailand

Mele Kalikimaka!

Ho, ho ho! Just like you, I like “Jingle Bells” “Silent Night,” “Frosty,” “Rudolph,” sung by Burl Ives,  Elvis’ “Blue Christmas,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas” but, I love “Mele Kalikimaka!”

  It is quite possibly the happiest-quirkiest-most unsung hero of the Christmas calvacade of songs.

Our family has six grass skirts stashed away – waiting for any opportunity to sing our very favorite Christmas carol.  Yeah, yeah, yeah, Bing Crosby got a bad rap-  for all those bad raps –  but, when the King of Croons stops to sing –  we slip into our neon grass skirts- get ready for Hula Hands- and belt out  the island greeting that we send to you…

 

 Aloha and Mahalo 

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas to you

Mele Kalikimaka is the word to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway

Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say Merry Christmas
A very Merry Christmas
A very, very, Merry,Merry Christmas to you
