"Christmas in the Sand" is a Christmas song recorded by American singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat. It was written by Caillat, Jason Reeves and Kara DioGuardi and produced by Colbie's father, Ken Caillat.

Background and release
Colbie told Billboard she wrote this song "thinking, what do they listen to over here Hawaii at Christmas time? I bet they don't always want to hear songs about white Christmases and bundling up 'cause it's cold outside. They want to have a holiday song they can relate to." Caillat teamed up with writing partners Kara DioGuardi and Jason Reeves to craft the bubbly and admittedly silly track, "Kara started coming up with all these funny lyrics about Santa falling off his surf board and Rudolph playing reindeer games on me," she says. "It's such a fun song and really shows a silly side of my personality that most people don't see besides my friends and family."
Linny's Vault described Colbie's voice 'strong, yet sweet', and also described the song as 'nothing like I've heard before and definitely fits to my kind of warm CA Christmas. (...) The upbeat tune of the song makes you want to sway in your seat (I literally did).'
