"Jolly Holiday" is a song from the film Mary Poppins. It was written by Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. It is sung by Bert (Dick Van Dyke) and Mary Poppins (Julie Andrews) in the pastel fantasy sequence before reaching the carousel. The Oscar winning music arranger Irwin Kostal provided the much lauded orchestration.

The song also appears in the musical, but it was changed to fit the story of Neleus from Mary Poppins Opens the Door.[citation needed]

The film takes place in 1910 (although the P.L. Travers books place the story in 1934) and the song is in the Music Hall style of the period.

The song has been parodied in Forbidden Broadway Cleans Up Its Act and the show's album, with the name "Jolly Holiday with Rudy," which made fun of the cleaning of Broadway at the time.

The Disney on Ice version was sung as "A Jolly Holiday in London".

It was included in Disney Sing Along Songs: I Love to Laugh!
