Mario and Luigi in Hollijolli Village
Hollijolli Village is a snow-covered town found in the Mushroom Kingdom in the game Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time. The area has a Christmas theme to it, with the name coming from the song "A Holly Jolly Christmas", and the background music being an unsettling rendition of "Jingle Bells". The Hollijolli Mayor is the leader of the village.

Hollijolli Village is the first area Mario and Luigi visit when they go back in time to the Mushroom Kingdom of the past. Once they reach the town, Mario and Luigi finds the mayor of the town, who is the only inhabitant of the village that survived the Shroob attack, by hiding in a chimney. Mario and Luigi then free him, but he immediately gets kidnapped by the Shroobs and Mario and Luigi get knocked unconscious by them. Eventually, they are saved by Baby Mario and Baby Luigi, their younger selves. The village can later be returned to via time hole.

Oddly, outside the time hole to Hollijolli Village, a Toad lies near-unconscious, muttering about having been attacked by a huge monster through the time hole. It is unknown what monster he is referring to. It may have been a large Shrooboid such as Elder or Brat.

One interesting thing about this area is that the grasslands in the very beginning where the tutorials take place (before you climb the steps to the higher grasslands leading to Hollijolli Village) is the only area of the Mushroom Kingdom that remains completely untouched by Shroob presence throughout the entire course of the game. Even the pathway leading to the village had some signs of a Shroob invasion (the UFO that abducts the Toad in the higher grasslands and the Shrooblets on the mushroom platforms), even though there were no visible changes to the physical landscape itself.
