“Some recent arrivals find Hawaii’s Christmas lacking. 'What is that snow from a can?,' they'll say in their Midwestern twang. Here’s our answer to them: We even have our own Christmas tales: Numbah One Day of Christmas in pidgin and Ke Ahiahi Mamua O Kalikimaka Twas the Night Before Christmas in Hawaii in Hawaiian - so neener neener neener.”
