Merry Christmas! The Old Hawaiian Way.
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…
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
