Vocal group Hotsy Totsy sang songs of holiday cheer for shoppers and diners on Saturday.
It's Christmastime, and Collingswood is showing no shortage of holiday cheer. Local singing group Hotsy Totsy—named after an expression of approval from the 1940s that means "close-to-perfect"—sang for shoppers and diners as they walked down the decorated streets. But Hotsy Totsy's song of choice wasn't exactly a classic Christmas carol—at least not in this part of the United States. The vocal group chose to sing a three-part harmony of Mele Kalikimaka, a classic Hawaiian Christmas song. And as harmonies melded together, Santa Claus himself stopped by, bearing tips and advice for the good little girls and boys of Collingswood Borough.
