    Frangipani Flowers.jpg                                    ALOHA!!  Happy May Day Everyone!!

 

Lyrics & Music: Leonard Hawk

May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii
Garlands of flowers everywhere
All of the colors in the rainbow
Maidens with blossoms in their hair

Flowers that mean we should be happy
Throwing aside a load of care
Oh, May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii
May Day is happy days out there

 

According to Harry B. Soria, the celebration of May 1 as Lei Day was invented in 1927 by island artist and writer Donald Benson Blanding and Grace Tower Warren. Don Blanding is also credited with the invention of the custom of tossing your lei overboard when you sailed away from Honolulu. If the lei came back to shore (and most did) it supposedly meant you would return.
