A Halama Christmas was written for the Halama Wind Octet of Minneapolis, Minnesota. It includes settings of three familiar carol melodies: Silent Night, What Child Is This?, and Joy to the World. The medley is continuous, with transitions and modulations linking each of the carols.
The first performance took place on December 6, 2000, at Mount Olivet Lutheran Church in Minneapolis. The piece is dedicated to the octet's founder and conductor, Marlene Pauley.
