Don’t forget the Lei’s
Anyone who visits Hawaii, recognizes the lei. While you no longer get them when you deplane in the islands, there are still many chances for them to be hung around your neck. From the simple pukka shell lei’s to kukui nut lei’s you get at a luau, lei’s have a deeper meaning here in Hawaii.
Just about any special occasion revolves around the person of honor being bestowed with lei’s. If you ever see a Hawaii graduation, you will see grads with multiple lei’s staked so high they can barely see many times.
If you get married in Hawaii, you will most likely have a lei at your wedding. Most often the bride will have a lei made of fragrant flowers to match her other wedding décor. Men on the other hand are usually provided a Maile lei which believe it or not, can be more expensive than the brides lei. Maile has much significance and was used to signify peace amongst apposing chiefs.
There are not many “rules” for wearing a lei but just a few things to consider. One, a lei is a welcome celebration showing affection from one person to another, so it is rude to refuse one. There is nothing wrong with removing it after a while but is considered rude to remove it in front of the person that gave it to you.
