Bing Crosby - Mele Kalikimaka (Hawaiian Christmas Song)

I wanted to drop in and wish every single one of you and your families a very Merry Christmas! Since the weather here in Florida has been in the 80s for over a week I decided I would share my favorite tropical Christmas song, recorded by Bing Crosby and the Andrew Sisters wayyyyy back in 1950…

It's warm and sunny in Mediterranean Spain too, I miss the snow and the White Christmas but this ads to family warmth.

Hi, Shellbelle! I've missed you while I've been away from the blogging world. Finally did my first post in about 3 months. I think I just burned out....but hope to do better in the months ahead. Haven't had time to read your posts and see what's going on with you, but hope all is well. Here's wishing you and yours a very blessed 2012!

Nothing like Old Florida, is there? I'm always so sorry when I see yet another spot slip away...
Had a wonderful time with Karen yesterday, in spite of the storm that hit just 45 minutes after we met!

Jane said...

I'm behind...as usual.

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas holiday and that 2012 brings you much joy...

Mele Kalikimaka...my 3rd grade teacher (oh, that was a loooooong time ago!) taught us that...and to say "happy new year", too. (But I don't remember this.) In my family, we said "fleetsy potsquash" (felice pasques)

Hugs,
J

And a Mele Kalikimaka to you, too, Shell Belle! :-)

I am finally back in the world of blogging, Rhonda. My computer is functioning. Yea!

Christmas was hectic but fun, and I am now enjoying some blog visiting. It feels like I have been let out of a cage with the return of my computer. YES!

Hope you had a good Christmas. I still have a couple of things for you here.

Sending you warm hugs, my friend, and all good wishes for a wonderful 2012!

Love you...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Popping in to say hello! Wasn't it the best Florida weather ever for Christmas? We loved it and got out just in time to beat your cold snap! I'm hoping that 2012 will be a better year for both of us! Happy New Year!

Love it! There is nothing that puts me in the holiday spirit faster than a lighted palm tree! Have a blessed Christmas! Travesti

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
