(CBS Local) While recording A Very Merry Perri Christmas in Los Angeles over the summer, Christina Perri she knew she was going to have to help set the mood with a few holiday knick knacks.
"I have so much Christmas spirit all year round, so it's fine for me," she told CBS Local. "But to get my band and my crew and the producers in the spirit we had a Christmas tree, lights and fake snow."
The singer, who had a whole budget just for decorations, forced everyone in the studio to wear Santa hats. She also bought a novelty item that she hoped would really get everyone excited to celebrate Christmas in July.
"We had a Santa Claus toilet," she said with a laugh. "We went full out!" Read more from her here.
