Waimanalo has its own unique community no more evident than in its annual Christmas Parade. It was my first time attending this parade (I didn’t know it existed before this), and I got to see a good, old parade reminiscent of small kid time. Luckily, our family was guests on the float sponsored by Waimanalo […]

Now it’s officially on, Christmas that is. I heard Willie K singing O Holy Night on the radio, and that, of course, marks the beginning of the Hawaii holiday season.
Who has the better collaboration with Mariah Carey on her holiday hit, All I Want for Christmas Is You. Is it Justin Bieber or Jimmy Fallon? Justin Bieber Jimmy Fallon I’m thinking Jimmy playing a wood block has my nod. And is that a Fisher Price xylophone on wheels?
Halloween is over, and November is here so you know what that means right? Black Friday? Well yeah, but really it means that Christmas is nearby! Here are signs out in the stores that signify Christmas is coming.
I was late to this song, made aware of it in 2004 in the Flashback: The Best Holiday Collection? But Henry Kapono’s Merry Christmas to You is on my Holiday playlist, and it should be on yours. Here’s Henry Kapono performing a live version of this Christmas classic in support of the Marines’ Toys for […]
I pity the fool who doesn’t have a very Merry Christmas! Via the Mental Floss.
Yes, we know that stainless steel refrigerators like the LG LFX31925ST/Sears Kenmore Elite Model 72053 do not have magnetic surfaces, so forget that idea of sticking on notes, calendars, and kids’ artwork. But that smooth steely surface can help liven up the Holiday Spirit in your kitchen. How? Just add a handful of Christmas-themed “magnetic […]
Hmmm, I seemed to have forgotten to post these pictures of the annual Kaneohe Christmas Parade. My bad for not sharing the Christmas cheer. The best moments were Mufi Hannemann taking pictures of the parade using his iPad while participating in the parade and the fire dance near the end of the event.
Okay, okay, not strictly Christmas, and I’m not too familiar with other religious Holiday traditions, but I do enjoy Adam Sandler’s Chanukah Song (Parts 1, 2, and 3). So you won’t be mistaking Adam’s rhyming skills with that of Emimem, but educating listeners about Chanukah he does. And if you had to rhyme “Chanukah,” I […]
Seriously, I don’t know what this song about other than the hook, “last Christmas, I gave you my heart but the very next day you gave it away.” What else is there to know? George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley in their prime. For a more upbeat tempo of this classic, I like the Jimmy Eat […]
It’s time, time to bring out an annual Christmas tradition. Long time fans know what I’m talking about. It’s time for the infamous Christmas Gift Prank. Go ahead, give it a play (or two), show your coworkers and your friends. Laugh, be merry. Mimic the sayings and doings of the video. Do that left handed […]
Yes, yes, my favorite Christmas song without a doubt, especially when performed by Willie K. This has to be my first song I play come December. Although local vocalist Natalie Ai Kamauu does a great rendition herself. Which one is better? The debate goes on.
