25 Days of Christmas Songs - Day 3 - Have a Holly Jolly Christmas

This Christmas carol was written in 1964 by Johnny Marks, one of the most prolific holiday songwriters ever (Marks' other credits include "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer", "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day", "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" and many others).

Have a Holly Jolly Christmas
Johnny Marks (c) 1472

Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
It's the best time of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow,
but have a cup of cheer.
Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
And when you walk down the street
Say Hello to friends you know
and everyone you meet.

Oh, ho, the mistletoe
hung where you can see;
Somebody waits for you;
Kiss her once for me.
Have a holly jolly Christmas,
and in case you didn't hear,
Oh by golly, have a holly,
jolly Christmas this year.
