There is something magical about spending Christmas in paradise. It’s not bitterly cold, but chilly enough to wear sweater and boots, and call it winter in beautiful Hawaii nei. Not to mention, this is the only place in the world where you see a giant sculpture of a barefoot Santa throwing the “shaka” sign, next to a cheerful Mrs. Claus (Tutu Mele) dressed in a muumuu.
The Red Knot staff visited the beloved Honolulu City Lights last weekend, joining the thousands of locals and visitors who get to experience the tropical holiday celebrations of downtown Honolulu. The event kicks off on the first Saturday of December with the lighting of the city’s 50-foot Christmas tree. Honolulu Hale features beautifully decorated Christmas trees with various themes- some elegant, some whimsical, some adorable! Photo-ops with the “real” Santa are also available. Lights, decorations and displays of snowmen, elves, Rudolf and other familiar holiday icons extend two blocks on King Street and Alapai Street. A must-see for those who love Christmas! Events run through the month of December and on till the first week of January. A joyous sight at night, the Honolulu City Lights is not one to be missed!
