May Day

May Day is Lei Day in Hawaiʻi.  When you give a lei, you are giving a part of you.  Likewise, as you receive a lei, you are receiving a part of the creator of the lei.

The first Lei Day was in 1927 and celebrated in downtown Honolulu with a few people wearing lei.    From that it grew and more and more people began to wear lei on May 1.  In 1929, Governor Farrington signed a Lei Day proclamation.
