Lei Day – The May 1 celebration focuses on the Hawaiian culture, and the aloha spirit. Whether you’ve been to the jewel of the pacific or not, Lei Day is an opportunity to dream of the islands, and plan a visit (or a return!) to their lush green shores.
The History of Lei Day – The custom of weaving and wearing flower leis originated with the Hawaiians so long ago that they have no record of its beginning. . . . When tourists discovered Hawaii, they loved the charming gesture and they spread the word of it until the lei became known around the world.
