Old Photo Friday: Lei Day

WHO: Jennifer Hanselman (Mom)
WHAT: Getting Lei-d
WHERE: Honolulu, Hawaii
WHEN: 1975

I've obviously still got Hawaii on the brain.  Tomorrow, we will have been home three weeks.  May 1st was Lei Day in Hawaii, a state wide celebration.  Lei Day was established in 1929 and each island has it's own lei that is used for the celebration and for its people to wear.  Maui's flower lei is called the lokelani and is pink.  Being presented with a lei upon arrival in Hawaii is a special treat and something that one never forgets.
