MAY DAY IS LEI DAY IN HAWAII

Aloha, ohana! May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii where we celebrate the aloha spirit and the giving of the flower lei of various beautiful flowers from the islands. It is unknown when the tradition of giving lei began; it was believed to be a custom with the original Hawaiians, who presented lei of nuts, seeds, shells, leaves, and flowers as offering to the gods  The celebration begins in the morning of May first every year and continues throughout the entire day and even continues onto the next. So, if you're in Hawaii in May, join the festivities on any of the islands. It is a statewide celebration of all islands. Click here for more information.
