An annual Christmas favorite, "Christmas in California" was written by singer Toni Tennille after she and husband Daryl Dragon had lived in Los Angeles, Orange County and Lake Tahoe.
Knowing what a transition it was for so many people who had moved to the California Coast, especially during Christmas, the Captain & Tennille recorded a holiday song for those who missed traditional winter weather and activities.
The following 1985 music video for "Christmas in California" features a classic performance of the holiday song which makes many listeners very emotional at Christmas.
While millions have moved to California, many have left the Golden State for various reasons. Many are homesick for California during the holidays and this particular song brings back many emotional California memories.
"Christmas in California" by Captain & Tennille is an all-time Christmas favorite and one of the classic songs about California.
