HAWAII Magazine Staffers' (And Friends) Favorite Christmas Songs

What are the holidays without a little Mariah Carey, Bing Crosby and Willie K?

When the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful, it’s best to put on a few Christmas songs and spend time with your loved ones. We all have own go-to jolly jingles, and our ohana (family) at HAWAII Magazine—as well as from our sister brands, HONOLULU Magazine and Hawaii Home and Remodeling—wanted to share the songs that get us into the mele kalikimaka mood.
