Mary Mary is an American contemporary gospel duo, consisting of sisters Erica Atkins-Campbell (born (1972-04-29)April 29, 1972) and Trecina "Tina" Atkins-Campbell (born (1974-05-02)May 2, 1974). The duo are often credited along with Kirk Franklin for broadening the fan base of urban contemporary gospel in the 2000s by introducing elements of soul music, hip hop, funk and jazz. Mary Mary broke onto the music scene with their popular song "Shackles (Praise You)"—which is considered one of the pioneering songs of urban contemporary gospel music. The group's name, as stated in an interview is inspired by the two famous Mary's from the Bible; Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ, and Mary Magdelene. more »

Looked out my window down the block
No snow on my street
East coast folks are making snow men
But that's fine with me

No snow cone
(No chestnuts roasting)
Got no scarf
(Don't need no mittens)

Maybe a sweater for the evening time
'Cause where I'm from, it's warm outside

It's a California Christmas
You can go outside and ride your new bike
It's a California Christmas
And nobody wants to stay inside

'Cause it's a beautiful day and the sun is shining
The family's all here and the baby's smiling
Blessed to see another holiday
Especially Christmas the Cali way

This time, a year I gotta bring cheer
To someone in need 'cause I am blessed
And all I wanna do is help somebody

This is the time
(To be self less)
Give from your heart
('Cause it's priceless)

I'll tell you the reason, everybody this the season

It's a California Christmas
You can go outside and ride your new bike
It's a California Christmas
And nobody wants to stay inside

'Cause it's a beautiful day and the sun is shining
The family's all here and the baby's smiling
Blessed to see another holiday
Especially Christmas the Cali way

No matter how it feels outside, it's still alright with me
'Cause it's all good as long as I have my friends and family
So all around the world, don't let this season just pass you by
Love and hugging, help somebody like us on the west side

It's a California Christmas
You can go outside and ride your new bike
It's a California Christmas
And nobody wants to stay inside

'Cause it's a beautiful day and the sun is shining
The family's all here and the baby's smiling
Blessed to see another holiday
Especially Christmas the Cali way
