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 title of the song A Holly Jolly Christmas, and the background music being an unsettling rendition of Jingle Bells. The Hollijolli Mayor is the ruler 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, specifically arriving in a pathway known as 'Near Hollijolli Village', where Stuffwell teaches the player various tutorials. Once they reach the town, Mario and Luigi find 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.

Outside the time hole to Hollijolli Village near the end of the game, 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; if the player returns to the village, they will not find any monsters there.

One interesting thing about this area is that the grasslands in the very beginning where the tutorials take place (before Mario, Luigi, and the babies climb the steps to the higher grasslands leading to Hollijolli Village) is the only area of the Mushroom Kingdom besides Baby Bowser's Castle 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.

After the player defeats Swiggler and returns to Peach's Castle, a new time hole appears within the castle which allows the player to revisit Hollijolli Village, as well as the grasslands and mushroom pathway before the village where the early tutorials took place.
