Today the Hawaiian Kingdom celebrates its national holiday, La Ho'omaika'i, Thanksgiving Day.  This is during the Makahiki season whereby we emphasize a period of peace, joy, love and happiness as opposed to war and strigent kapu.  Our kupuna knew we needed a "circuit-breaker" and what better time to do it than during the season of Lono. 
 
Christmas coincides with the Polynesian practice; so whether we celebrate Thanksgiving proclaimed by Kamehameha IV or the
Christians' traditional Christmas, all is in order of the day.  Peace on earth to men of good will!
 
Have a happy holiday season one and all!  Don't for get our next national holiday is Memorial Day on 30 December; a time to reflect on our loved ones who have departed from this world.
 
God bless you all,
 
Tane
