Hawaiian Lei Greetings
May 1 is May Day, known in Hawaii as Lei Day. Lei Day is a celebration of Hawaiian Culture that centers around fragrant, flower leis. In 1927 Honolulu Star-Bulletin writer Don Blanding advocated for the creation of a day to honor lei-making and the custom of wearing leis. Grace Tower Warren, his coworker, coined the phrase “May Day is Lei Day.” On May 1, 1928, the first Hawaiian Lei Day festivities were held downtown with music, hula, exhibits, lei making demonstations and contests. In 1929 Lei Day was made an official holiday. The celebration continues today!
Even if you can’t make it to Hawaii for Lei Day you can start your Hawaii vacation off the right way with Airport Lei Greetings.
We were greeted at the Honolulu Airport with a fragrant symbol of Aloha.

I may be on official Hawaii Discount travel blog business with the iphone and camera in hand but just stepping off the plane to a Hawaiian Lei Greeting is enough to melt the stress away.
