Christmas Break

This will probably be shorter than my unannounced breaks, but this time I won’t feel guilty about not posting. I’ll be spending the holidays with my family on the mainland and won’t be near a computer, hopefully. So Happy Holidays wherever you are and enjoy the following pictures of light displays on Kauai from this year and last.

off of their Christmas Time album, which I recommend.

First, some government buildings get lights, including the County Building that I never manage to photograph very well.

Inside the county building, there are Hawaiian themed Christmas displays crafted by a local woman.

Then, there’s a light parade in Lihue early in December, which I like to call “generators on parade,” but it is really fun for the children.

Finally, some people set up very nice lights on their house, from understated to over-the-top.

    Andy,

    Great post…great song! Perfect example of how the Hawaiian culture can, seemingly, effortlessly assimilate the best of other cultural traditions, while preserving it’s rich heritage. Looking forward to your 2007 posts.
