12 Days of Christmas Song with a Hawaii Twist

Yesterday, we drove to the Western North Carolina mountains to spend Christmas with family.  The trip normally takes 3.5 hours, but yesterday it took us 2.5 hours longer because of icy roads and a wreck (not us, thankfully) that stoppedimage traffic in both directions for over 2 hours. So, with this extra time, we put it to good use by making up new lyrics to the song The Twelve Days of Christmas, but with a silly, island inspired twist. Sing along as you read it, starting with “On the twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me,”

Twelve whales a leaping

Eleven hula dancers

Ten surfers surfing

Nine ukes a strumming

Eight coconut pancakes

Seven dolphins swimming

Six honu basking

Fiiiiiiiiive golden beaches

Four finger poi

Three Kauai hens

Two loco mocos

And a nene in a palm tree

I hope you’ve enjoyed our semi-humorous lyrics. Andy and I wish a Mele Kalikimaka to you and yours!

  1. Very well done. We did one for our hockey team a few years ago, but I like you’re a lot better.

    Mele Kalikimaka to you and Andy as well. Have a safe trip back home, too.

  2. Kris – Merry Christmas to you and Cindy! I heard Chicago is getting snow. Enjoy your white Christmas!

  3. Too cute! I love “and a nene in a palm tree” – perfect!

  4. Love it! Good job! Glad you were able to make good use of your time. 😉
