The lei po'o that we are wearing are the ones that the older students wore last night for the Christmas program.
It felt like half of the island came to watch the parade! There was a ton of spectators! We sang Christmas carols as we walked along the route (in Hawaiian). The parade itself wasn't as big as the Festival of Lights, but it was still good. All of the stores in town were decorated with Christmas lights. In the center of town there is a courtyard with a dozen palm trees all wound up with lights... Now Christmas break has begun!
