Holiday Memories: Hawaiian Style

Santa and his Dolphins in Waikiki

Sunbathing in Waikiki. Dolphins instead of reindeer. Palm trees lit up under the starry skies.

Growing up in Hawaii has its perks, and one of them is experiencing unique holiday traditions.

Having never lived in a snowy climate, I am not familiar with winter wonderlands complete with snowmen and sleigh rides. It sounds (and looks) magical, but am so thankful I grew up experiencing a different kind of holiday.

"Mele Kalikimaka" (Merry Christmas)

So tell me, what were the holidays like for you as a child?
