Happy Lei Day


May day is also known as "Lei Day" in Hawaii. This was actually started back in 1928, but you will see people wearing leis all throughout the year. One year on Lei Day I made everyone candy leis.

There is a Roy's restaurant near us and they usually give out free orchid leis to the customers. Except the menu (4-5 courses is $85 a person). It looks yummy though!
