Mele Kalikimaka

Mele Kalikimaka is a Christmas song sung as a warm greeting from Hawaii. The song takes its title from the phrase of "Mele Kalikimaka," the Hawaiianized pronunciation of "Merry Christmas".
The reason I am wishing you all a Merry Christmas in Hawaiian is because that is where we are right now. We are on Waikiki Beach for the first week and then we head over to the Big Island of Hawaii to spend Christmas with Grandpa & Grandma. I am sure many you of remember the great excitement when I won this trip to Hawaii on The Ellen Show! I can't believe it was just a few short months ago on that crazy day in February when I was bouncing on stage next to Ellen and then after all the excitement she announced I had won a trip to Hawaii - whooo hoo - A week all inclusive including airfare at the Waikiki Parc Hotel! It was one of the most amazing experiences to be on the Show and to win such a fab prize. Ellen if you are reading this ;) - you rock! Well folks I hope that your Christmas is just as fabulous! No matter where you are celebrating, I would like to wish you all a wonderful Merry Christmas and and the most amazing New Year ever! Aloha Kazan

Gorgeous card, Kazan. I am sure you and your family are having a fab time in Hawaii. I hadn't heard about 'Mele Kalikimaka' until I read it here on your blog. And guess what....last week I heard the song several times on a Dutch radio station where they played Xmas music all day long.
