Mele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day
That’s the island greeting that we send to you
From the land where palm trees sway
Here we know that Christmas will be green and bright
The sun to shine by day and all the stars at night
Mele Kalikimaka is Hawaii’s way
To say “Merry Christmas to you.”
There is a saying here, that if Hawai`i wants you to stay it will hold on to you. Though you scatter to the four winds, it will always call you back.
For all of you who are hearing the call, this site is for you.
Just a few more days here in Maui, then we return to L.A. and plan the move to Connecticut. But Hawaii, we’ve heard your call, and will return. Probably to the Big Island next time.
Merry Christmas, all!
