This is the title track of Colbie Caillat's Christmas album, Christmas In The Sand
. The record contains four original songs and eight holiday standards.
Colbie is from sunny Malibu, California, and her Christmas memories aren't filled with snowmen and sleigh rides, so she wrote about the holiday from a different perspective. In our interview with Colbie
, she said that this title track was her favorite of the songs she wrote for the album, adding, "It shows how us Californians occasionally spend our Christmases. And it's really fun, upbeat and quirky. The video for it cracks me up. I'm dancing on the beach with elves and Santa is surfing in the water."
