  1. Thank you! I find Christmas songs are great way to get into the festive spirit and sharing them on social media is also great fun. Glad you mentioned Mele Kalikimaka – completely forgot about this one!!

  2. Some really good ones in here, some I don’t even know very well. I once had to write a research paper on the history of some of the old traditional Christmas hymns (not carol’s as carols were originally for Easter.) Ever since watching National Lampoon’s Christmas vacation and being in Hawaii at the beginning of December I have had a soft spot for Mele Kalikimaka.

    Great post and so much material
