May Day is Lei Day in Hawai'i
The phrase "May Day is Lei Day
is a common phrase, said every year on the first day of May. The day and phrase, which were conceptualized in the late 1920s, is symbolic of the rich Hawaiian tradition of making, giving, and receiving a lei. What makes a lei so special, among other things, is its uniqueness to our Islands and the feelings of warmth and aloha it evokes.
