May Day tells of the origin of this special celebration in England over 700 years ago and describes how Hawaii came to embrace it. Lei Day describes how local customs commemorate Hawaii's royal history and details the significance of color and materials used to make the beautiful lei. Simple lei-making instructions are included so Hawaii's keiki can make a lei of their very own. Beautiful photographs throughout show how this day is celebrated throughout Hawaii.
