Happy Holidays everyone!!

I took these photos on Monday at Honolulu Hale (Honolulu's City Hall).

To see more photos of Honolulu Hale, as well as photos of the Kamehameha Statue and Iolani Palace, click on...

A close up of the tree:

The entrance to Honolulu Hale (excuse the signs, the car, and the security who
seem to be more busy chatting than doing their job, although I am sure if I tried
to move the signs, they would have jumped right into action):

Inside Honolulu Hale:

Nearby, the Kamehameha Statue (it is hard to see, but there are a few leis on the statue base):

Mele Kalikimaka to you too Girasoli! These are wonderful photos and I love the leis, ukelele and hula decorations ! Thank you so much for writing such great blogs throughout the year. I have learned so much and have enjoyed reading your posts.

I want to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year Girasoli! We'll break open the Champaign (or should I say Prosecco) bottle for you over here in Califronia to start the New Year Celebration in 2009 to kick things off, then I'm sure you'll carry on the Celebration over in Hawaii for us. Should be a fun and interesting year!

Cool photos! I really enjoy seeing what Christmas looks like in Hawaii. Hope you have a great holiday!

Girasoli, what great photos.....everything is so lush and green. And I love the Hanukkah snowpeople!

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Buon Natale -- have a wonderful holiday season!

I love the little snowman with the surfboard. I didn't know there were grommet snowmen!

Happy Holidays!!

Beautiful and very colorful post! It brighten my day on this Christmas Eve. So funny to see the snowmen with palm trees in the background and one holding a surfboard.

Merry Christmas to you and your family! Enjoy the holiday vacation.

Thanks for sharing the aloha spirit this Christmas. The photos are great. Mele Kalikimaka to you.

Merry Christmas friend :)

Thank you everyone and again, Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays! I am so thankful to all of you for your kind comments and support. It has been wonderful meeting so many new friends and becoming a member of a very special blogging community.

I thought you'd have that pic of the shirtless Obama on the beach all photoshopped to look like Santa!

Have a wonderful Christmas - all the best in 2009!

Great photos! Sending you a warm wonderful Buon Natale!

Jerry, your comment cracked me up. Being the next president is the gift Santa brought to me and millions of others. No need having him shirtless on my blog :) He has already hit enough internet sites that way.

Thanks so much Palma! You too!!
