Christmas in HawaiiMele Kalikimaka is the thing to say
On a bright Hawaiian Christmas Day
Mele Kalikimaka

When the first European settlers came, Christmas was unknown to the Hawaiians. However, the Western holiday coincided with an ancient island rite of giving thanks to the gods for a bountiful year, so the two traditions eventually fused to what has become the "Christian holiday" season on the islands.

Today, Santa comes every year in a magic canoe over the sea and right up onto the beach - with expressions of Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas) and a Hau'oli Makahiki Hou (Happy New Year).
