Mele Kalikimaka

I’m 5 years old and I’m in kindergarten, and December rolls around so we do a big elementary school holiday show one night that we spend most of the month practicing. To this day, I not only know all the words to Mele Kalikimaka, I remember the choreography from that night.

So after all these years, it’s fun to learn where the phrase in the song comes from, which makes sense given the rules of Hawaiian language.
