Hawaii coloring pages

Hawaii,  “The Aloha State”, is a state in the Western United States, located in the Pacific Ocean about 2,000 miles from the U.S. mainland.  Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States. The capital and the largest city is Honolulu. Here are coloring pages of the state of Hawaii. You can paint the state flag, map, Hawaii symbols and more. 
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 of Hawaii, better known as the "Big Island," has the beautiful red blossom of the ʻōhiʻa lehua, Metrosideros polymorpha.
The flower of Maui Island is the a pink lokelani (Rosa damascena). The flower of Oahu Island is ʻilima (Sida fallax). The color of the Ilima is golden and can be seen all over the island. The island of Molokai 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). Kahoʻolawe island has the gray or silver flower, hinahina (Heliotropium anomalum var. argentum). Niʻihau island has a white, pūpū o Niʻihau (Niʻihau shells) and Kauaʻi has purple, mokihana (Melicope anisata).
In celebrations of this day are expressed all the musical traditions and dance styles of all the Hawaiian Islands, which together create a colorful and spectacular show, full of colors and joy.

Chocolate Caramel Day - March 19

Today we celebrated a great combination of two amazing flavors - chocolate and caramel. Caramel has a special taste and smell, which is a bit difficult to define, ranges from sweet to bitter and is formed from sugar that is heated and becomes liquid and chocolate has a special and addictive taste that we do not need to define because we all know. The two together put a smile on faces and an addictive sense of happiness, if only for a few moments.

Caramel chocolate is one of the greatest culinary inventions in history. The origin of the caramel is not really known. It lies somewhere in the two hundred years between 1650 and 1880 in the Americas, when the new settlers tried to make candies by heating water with their sugar added fat and milk, and thus the caramel was born. During this period refined sugar was rare and expensive, so the caramel was often prepared with sugar beet juice.
One of the most successful and famous makers of caramel candy in the late 19th century was Milton Hershey of Pennsylvania, USA. There he bought German chocolate machines which he was very enthusiastic about. He bought the equipment and soon started making their chocolate bars and added the ingredient from which he had previously earned a respectable living - the caramel.

How to celebrate Caramel Chocolate Day?
Make caramel from one of the most successful recipes on the Internet. Add it to chocolate, ice cream, popcorn or whatever you want. You can also buy tables or caramel chocolate bars and enjoy this successful and special combination.
March 19 is also Client's Day

Pig Day - March 1

Pig Day is a national event celebrated in the United States in honor of the pig.
The holiday began in 1972 and was founded by sisters Alan Stanley, a teacher from Texas and Mary Lynn Rave from North Carolina. Their goal was to recognize pigs as animals domesticated by human who deserve to be treated fairly and not legally cruel.
National Pig Day events include parades, celebrations at zoos, schools, nursing homes and special sporting events dedicated to pigs across the United States.

Unfortunately there are places where "pig parties" are held where pork dishes such as bacon and pork ribs are served as refreshments and pink ribbons are tied on the trees as a sign of respect for the pigs (the obvious question is if on pork day they do not deserve not to eat them for a change?)
In honor of Pig Day, we'll be happy if you think of pigs positively, and find that they are animals, that can suffer, enjoy, love, play and rejoice, like all animals on earth. Even if they look greasy and dirty, that does not mean they are not charming.

Fun facts about pigs:
The pig is a very intelligent, sensitive and sociable animal.
There are quite a few people who raise a pig as a pet. One of the famous pigs adopted is Esther the Wonder Pig. Esther was adopted in 2012 by a couple who love animals from the US. When they adopted her she was a dwarf pig thrown from the commercial farm where she grew up, probably because of some deformity. And half almost follow.
Esther the Wonder Pig 

Like humans, pigs eat everything, meaning both plants and other animals.

The pig's nose is an important tool for finding food in the soil and for feeling the world around it.

Pigs have an excellent sense of smell and humans take advantage of this feature to detect explosives and truffles.

The kosher and Halal laws of Judaism and Islam forbid eating pork. In Judaism, the pig is not kosher because it is a horseshoe, but it does not breed. In Judaism and Islam the pig is a symbol of impurity

Pigs coloring pages
There are about 2 billion pigs in the world.

Humans raise pigs on the farm for their meat.

Some people like to raise pigs as pets.

Wild boars are often hunted in the wild.

In some parts of the world, wild boars are the main source of food for tigers.

Pigs can transmit a variety of diseases to humans.

Relative to their body size, pigs have small lungs.

Pigs are known for their gluttonous nature hence the phrase "eat like a pig".

Pie Pastry Day - January 23

National Pie Day is an annual celebration of the pie pastry that takes place annually in the United States on January 23rd. Do not confuse pie day with pie day, which takes place on March 14.
The founder of Pie Day is a nuclear scientist, brewer and teacher named Charlie Papazian of Boulder, Colorado, who announced in the mid-1970s his personal birthday, January 23, as Pie Day. Since 1986 it has become a national day under the auspices of the American Pie Council.
In 2014, the American Pie Council collaborated with the film company Paramount to promote Pie Day and the romantic thriller film “Labor Day” which features a pie-making scene that appears prominently (the film was also released a few days after National Pie Day).

The Pie Board has distributed a poster of the film to pie shops and bakeries where the stars of the film, Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin and Gatlin Griffith are seen in the cake making scene. The choice of film to promote Pie Day has been criticized because the film tells the story of a fugitive killer who kidnaps from the supermarket a single mother and son and imprisons them in their home. Although a close bond is formed between them where they, among other things, make a pie together, but still, the choice is problematic. The poster reads: "It makes the time we spend together, just a little sweeter. Pie. Catch a slice of life."

The pie is a pastry in a round pan with low sides that are filled with salty or sweet fillings. The pie can be used as a cake with fruit, whipped cream, cheese, chocolate, custard, nuts, etc., or as a pie with meat or meat substitutes, fish, vegetables and more.
How to celebrate Pie Day?
Of course the best way to celebrate Pie Day is to eat your favorite pie, at home or in a cafe. Many cafes serve a pie with a savory filling or a sweet dessert with a scoop of ice cream and whipped cream next to it. If you are in the US, there are many businesses that offer slices of pie in honor of Pie Day at special discounts or even for free when buying a meal, you can see the list here.

Wright Brothers Day- December 17

On December 17, 1903, Orville and Wilbur Wright made the first manned flight on Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

The Wright Brothers were not the first to build experimental planes, but until then the attempts failed and ended in tragic disasters.

The Wright brothers' plane was a breakthrough discovery in aviation science and influenced the research and development directions of aircraft later on. The flight took a few seconds and required further development, but it prepared the ground for the aviation industry and opened the skies for world travel to all parts of the globe.


The History of Wright Brothers Day

On September 24, 1959, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower declared the anniversary of the Wright brothers' first flight in 1903 as a holiday (this is a memorial day in the government's calendars, but it was not technically a state holiday). This was in honor of the pioneering experiments of the Wright brothers, and also to focus on the history of aviation technologies.


How to celebrate Wright Brothers Day?

Every year, the President of the United States announces this day and invites Americans to celebrate special activities and ceremonies in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, where the first flight was held, in Dayton, Ohio, the birthplace of the Wright brothers. There are also special visits in aviation museums and special activities in schools.

Pearl Harbor Day- 7 December

Pearl Harbor National Memorial Day, also known as Pearl Harbor Day, falls every year in the United States on December 7 to remember and honor the 2,403 US citizens killed in the surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, on December 7, 1941.
On August 23, 1994, the US Congress determined that December 7 of each year would be the National Memorial Day of Pearl Harbor. On Pearl Harbor, the American flag is lowered to half-mast until sunset to honor those who died as a result of the attack on US Navy forces in Hawaii.

Pearl Harbor Day is not a federal holiday - government offices, schools and businesses are not closes. Some organizations may hold special events in memory of those killed or injured in Pearl Harbor.
The attack on Pearl Harbor took place on the morning of Sunday, December 7, 1941, during World War II. Imperial Japanese aircraft attacked the American base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, which was the main base of the US Navy in the Pacific Ocean. At 7:55 am Mitsu Poshida, the leading Japanese pilot, gave the signal for the attack when he called "Tora, Torre, Torre".
The attack on Pearl Harbor was seared into the American consciousness as an event of national disgrace, remembered to be a disgrace, and is considered the greatest intelligence failure in the history of the United States, until the terror attack on the Twin Towers in New York. The attack on Pearl Harbor caused the United States to enter World War II and, in retrospect, defeat Japan.  

December 7 is also Cotton Candy Day

Repeal Day - December 5

Repeal Day is an unofficial holiday in the United States in honor of the end of the prohibition on this date in 1933.

The prohibition was a period between 1920 and 1933 in which alcohol was outlawed throughout the United States.

The Prohibition Act was enacted on January 16, 1919 under the leadership of Andrew Volstead, an American member of the Republican Party from Minnesota, and entered the U.S. Constitution as the 18th Amendment.

It went into effect a year later, on January 16, 1920 and banned the production, transportation and sale of liquor throughout the United States.


From the moment the law went into effect, the dry season began in the United States.

The reason for enacting the law was the perception that the state should protect the citizens from the bad things they are doing to themselves and alcohol was a major cause of many damages.

For 13 years the drought laws have existed in the US but they have not been able to solve the problem. As you can probably imagine, people like to be free and decide for themselves what is good for them, so many opposed the law and thus developed a "black market" of alcohol that led to an increase in crime.

Mafia organizations began to engage in alcohol smuggling and distribution in a dangerous manner and the capitalists who wanted to return the trade in alcoholic beverages legally pressed the government to repeal the laws.

On December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment to the United States Constitution was repealed repealing the 18th Amendment and ending the dry season that caused more trouble than good.

Interesting facts about the Prohibition

The United States was not the only country to enact laws against everything to do with alcohol. Russia, Iceland, Norway, Finland, and Prince Edward Island also experienced periods of drought during the 20th century.

Repeal Day is the only holiday in the United States that celebrates a change in their constitution.

The dry laws have contributed to the flourishing of gangster organizations, especially in Chicago which has become a haven for dry law violators. The most famous gangsters, like El Capone and his rival Bugs Moran, made millions of dollars from selling smuggled liquor. By the end of the turbulent 1920s El Capone controlled 10,000 pubs called Speakeasy in Chicago and the liquor business in the area between Canada and Florida.

Speakeasy (also called "Blind Pig" or "Blind Tiger") were institutions that illegally sold liquor. After the repeal of the Dryness Act, Speakeasy disappeared and today the term is used in the United States to describe pubsthat are unfamiliar with an intimate atmosphere, especially those that are far from large entertainment areas.

When the law went into effect, the law enforcement task was assigned to a special police force of 1,520 federal agents.

Many people have paid with their lives for trying to enforce the laws of drought. Eleven U.S. Coast Guard law enforcement personnel were killed between 1925 and 1927 in an attempt to thwart smuggling. In the Ministry of Finance, 56 people were killed between 1920 and 1927 when they tried to interfere with the mafia trading in alcohol. In the Ministry of Justice also 34 people were killed between 1930 and 1934. In addition to law enforcement, thousands of people have died from drinking counterfeit liquor.


Instead of reducing the scale of crime, the Drought Act turned some cities into battlefields between rival gangs engaged in liquor smuggling. The amount of crime only increased. During the years 1920–1921, acts of theft and burglary increased by 9%, murders by 12.7%, the number of assaults increased by 13%, drug use increased by 44.6% and police expenditure increased by 11.4%. All of these were mostly the result of so-called "black market violence" and the distraction from crimes unrelated to the law of drought.

The Drought Act has managed to change the habits of the population regarding alcohol consumption, but temporarily. It halved consumption during the 1920s but until the 1940s, the level of consumption returned to the level it was before the ban.

How to celebrate Repeal Day?

Go out and celebrate at the bar in the style of Speakeasy  as in the 1920s. Find a quiet and intimate neighborhood pub where you can have a drink with friends. Just make sure you have a driver who did not drink after the party.

If you are in the United States, you will see special promotions in honor of the Repal Day.

Try cocktails like Moscow Mule, Margarita, Martini, Manhattan, Daiquiri, Negroni, Old Fashion and more. Do not forget that there are mocktails too! Mocktails are refreshing cocktails that do not contain alcohol and allow you to enjoy a drink without suffering from hangovers and without fogging your senses. If you are under 18, the cocktails are great for you to celebrate Repeal Day.

Happy Repeal Day!

Some more interesting facts about Alaska:

The United States purchased Alaska from Russia for only $ 7.2 million in 1867.

The mayor of Talkeetna, Alaska for 20 years, from 1997 to 2017 was a cat. He was called Stubbs and he was elected mayor because the residents were not happy with any of the human candidates. His office was housed in a box at a local store. In 2013 he was attacked by a dog and managed to survive the attack. He even had his own Twitter account where he occasionally tweeted to residents. He died in good health at the age of 20 and three months.

In 1964, one of the largest earthquakes in North America occurred in Alaska. The quake was followed by a 67-meter-high tsunami that destroyed a small town called Valdez. 131 people were killed in this incident.

Every Alaska resident receives an "oil royalties" check once a year, a payment for his share of the state's oil revenues. In 2008, the amount was $ 2,069.

Since 1975, personal use of marijuana has been legal in Alaska.

The highest mountain in North America, Mount Denali  (also known as Mount McKinley, its former official name), is in Alaska. It is 20,156 feet (6,144 meters) above sea level.

The baked Alaska dessert is made from ice cream served cold in a dough or cake shell. The ice cream is coated in meringue that prevents heat from penetrating into it. In 1876, baked Alaska got its name when at Delmonico's Restaurant in New York it was prepared in honor of the new area purchased by the United States: Alaska.
