Mele Kalikimaka to you!

You may have heard the song "Mele Kalikimaka," 
played throughout the month of December.
It's the Hawaiian Christmas Song, and the title words mean "Merry Christmas."
Written in 1947 by Honolulu-born Robert Alexander Anderson,
it has very upbeat lyrics with a happy, catchy tune.
Although the song has been recorded by many artists including
Bette Midler, Jimmy Buffett, Train, and even the Chipmunks,
I love the retro, 1950 rendition by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters.
Enjoy this YouTube video, featuring scenes from Christmas in Hawaii!
