"That Time of Year" is a song from the featurette Olaf's Frozen Adventure. It is sung by Olaf, who goes around the kingdom looking for traditions for Anna and Elsa.

Lyrics

Olaf:
Happy, merry, holly jolly, season's greetings here
I'm wondering what your family does at that time of year
Love and joy and peace on Earth and tidings of good cheer
Do you have tradition things for that time of year?

Citizens:
Well, we hang a thousand evergreen on every single doorway
Bake a giant cookie in the wavy shape of Norway
Go from door to door to door wassailing with our choir

Olaf:
Hang up all your giant socks above an open fire
That sounds safe!

So happy, merry, yuletide carol, faithful friends are dear
Thanks for sharing what you do at that time of year

We better get a move on if we're gonna hit every house in the kingdom!

Jolly, merry, happy holly on a midnight clear
I'm here to ask you what you do at that time of year
Hi, shalom, happy solstice, fancy chandelier
I'm looking for tradition stuff for that time of year

Citizens:
Well, we make our decorations out of flotsam and jetsam
Bake a yummy fruit cake and you can't leave 'til you get some

Olaf: That went right through me.
Child: Buy each other presents and then hide them very nimbly

Olaf:
Wait up for a chubby man to shimmy down your chimney...
Breaking and entering: okay on Christmas.

Oh, happy, merry muletide barrel, faithful glass of cheer
Thanks for sharing what you do at that time of year
Thank you!

Citizens:
We knit scarves and sweaters and we wear our matching mittens
Don't forget the jammies that I knitted for my kittens
Eight nights in a row, we light menorahs on our mantles

Olaf:
You cut down a tree... and then you dress its corpse with candles?
I... love it!

Anna and Elsa, we have all that they need
I'll fill my sleigh here with the help of my steed
It'll be the best time of year
(Anna and Elsa: It's up to you...)
Up to me...

Citizens: Up to... [Kitten mews]

Olaf:
Happy, merry, Mele Kaliki, holly, jolly, happy, tappy
A chubby man will soon appear and faithful friends are tiny deer
And festive tidings, midnight clear and
Can I leave this fruit cake here?
At that time of year...

[Kitten mews]

Happy, merry, holly jolly, tidings of good cheer
I never meant to let them down at that time of year

Trivia

  • Four of the villagers that Olaf visits during the line, "and tidings of good cheer!", greatly resemble the dignitaries from Frozen, including the Duke of Weselton.
