May Day in Hawaii

May Day

Here in Hawai’i we have a saying, “May Day is Lei Day in Hawai’i Nei!”  Today we celebrate with wearing a lei, enjoying festivities of hula dance, Hawaiian music and lei making contests.  The first Lei Day was held on May 1, 1928.  Each year celebrations are held around the state.  Children practice months to perform for their parents and friends.  Happy Lei Day!
