I'M BACK IN FULL TRAINING FOR ANOTHER 4-WEEKS BEFORE I HEAD BACK TO KEAUKAHA, HILO, HAWAI'I... AGAIN!!! YOU READ CORRECTLY... "AGAIN!!!"
WHY??? BECAUSE I'M GOING TO GO SEE KAHEALANI'S "MAY DAY" PROGRAM AT HER SCHOOL!!!
SO YOU ASK... WHAT IS "MAY DAY" IN HAWAI'I...
In Hawaii, May Day is also known as Lei Day, and it is normally set aside as a day to celebrate island culture in general and the culture of the Native Hawaiians in particular. Invented by poet and local newspaper columnist Eric Kosciuszko in the 1920s, it has since been adopted by state and local government, as well as local residents, and has taken on the sense of a general spring celebration.
The first official Lei Day was proposed in 1927 in Honolulu by poet and artist Don Blanding. Leonard "Red" and Ruth Hawk composed "May Day Is Lei Day in Hawai'i", the traditional holiday song. Originally it was a contemporary fox trot, later rearranged as the Hawaiian hula song performed today.
SO THERE YOU HAVE IT... A SIMPLE EXPLANATION AND YET ANOTHER "AWWWESOME" EVENT YOU SHOULD WITNESS IF YOU EVER IN HAWAI'I DURING THAT TIME OF THE YEAR.
OKAY... BACK TO WHERE I WAS EARLIER... IT DOES FEEL SUPER GOOD TO BE BACK IN TRAINING FULL TIME... BESIDES... MY BODY DESERVES THE BEST TREATMENT AND IT DOES GET BORED EASILY... LOL!!!
