What do you think of when you hear the word Hawaii? What is the first thing you imagine?
The Lei, Hawaii necklace, is the symbol of the tropical islands, especially of the Hawaiian Islands. Most people, the first thing they think of when they are told the word Hawaii, is the colorful garland of flowers that characterizes the islands.
The lei is a traditional gift for any visitor to the island. It is a cultural symbol in Hawaii, representing the deity: affection, love, peace, compassion and mercy.
Lei Day is a holiday throughout the state of Hawaii. The celebration begins on the first morning of May each year and continues throughout the day and even a little the next day. The day was founded as a holiday in 1929 and continues to this day. Each island in Hawaii has a different type of necklace used for celebration.
The festivities grew steadily each year, and the state of Hawaii was forced to relocate the event. The festivities were first held in the courts and town halls, but have since been moved to Kapiolani park in Honolulu, where they take place to this day.
The Hawaiian Lei has a very rich and colorful history. Each island in Hawaii has a special flower that specifically represents it. The main island ofHawaii, better known as the "Big Island," has the beautiful red blossom of the ʻōhiʻa lehua, Metrosideros polymorpha.
The flower ofMaui Island is the a pink lokelani (Rosa damascena). The flower ofOahu Island is ʻilima (Sida fallax). The color of the Ilima is golden and can be seen all over the island. The island ofMolokai uses a flower called Kukui (Aleurites moluccanus) which is green in color. On a smaller island called Lānaʻi, there is the orange, kaunaʻoa (Cuscuta sandwichiana).
