BAD AXE, MI, October 29, 2016 – When Johnny Prill first released this song - then
entitled The Holly Jolly Christmas Song - in November 2015, he could not have

resulted from the reaction of children who heard the song and then repeatedly asked to
hear “The Ho Ho Song” played again! From the first time they heard it, children were
singing along and dancing to the song’s lively beat; it received wonderful reviews during its
initial release and DJs were quick to add the song to their playlists.
