My wife and I would like to wish all of you Mele Kalikimaka. As songwriter Robert Alex Anderson wrote in 1949, and as was made famous in song by Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters, "Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii's way, to say Merry Christmas to you."

Hawaii is a special place at Christmas time. While you won't see snow except on rare occasions on the summit of Mauna Kea, you will still see signs of Christmas across the islands.
Fresh Christmas trees arrive on barges from the mainland and can cost a pretty penny. Santa arrives on a surfboard and you're likely to see most island Santas and his elves decked out in aloha shirts. Instead of a turkey dinner, many locals plan a luau for family and friends. With people of so many races and backgrounds calling Hawaii their home, you'll be delighted by the many different Christmas traditions that you'll see in the islands.
