Honolulu Hale Christmas Lights

Filed under hawaii, my family

Last night we took the family to Honolulu Hale to see their annual Christmas Lights Display. Every Christmas, they have beautiful lighting creations and Christmas trees decorated by various city departments. Going there has become a family tradition. I know Ma can relate!


They even had a Hawaiian Santa taking pictures with the kids and handing out candy canes.

I thought he was a little strange, though. After Girlie Girl took her picture with him, he said that I should take one, too. I really didn’t want to but he kept insisting and everyone in line was watching us. So I agreed. He kept telling the photographer to take “just one more”. Weirdo! The things I’ll do for a candy cane!

    hmmmm… well Santa… he knows where all the girls live (naughty and nice) so, which one are you? heee heee.

    It depends on who you ask! LOL!

    Those lights are gorgeous, but not as much as you are, so that’s why the weirdo Santa wanted more photos! You FAR outshine anything artificial.

    You are such an awesome mom — I bow to you…

    Girlie Girl looks so cute and happy!

    **You are just too kind. I like you! You’re so good for my ego! LOL!

    That looks like such a fun thing. The Phoenix Zoo puts on a yearly display called ZooLights that’s become a tradition for us as well. Thanks for sharing the photos. As for the weird Santa and his jollies…well ’nuff said. At least you got a candy cane!

    ** Except my husband ate it before I could stop him. I told him he needed to sit on Santa’s lap and get me another one!

    LOL you crack me up….did he sit on Santa’s lap? :)

    The lights look really really cool! We need to find something like that around here to go see. We have one house down the way from ours that I swear have to be related to the Griswalds. It’s … like something you’d see on You Tube set to the Siberian whatever Orchestra.

    Wow, those are spectacular Light creations. Thanks for sharing.

    Hmmm, perhaps, Santa knows how to appreciate pretty ladies. :) Happy Holidays!

    Ohhhhhh I think I’m going to take the family down to Anne Marie Gardens tonight to see our local “fancy” Christmas lights! How FUN! Those are really beautiful! Christmas in Hawaii must be just an altogether DIFFERENT experience than Christmas on the mainland!

    Yes, I’m a little envious of those who are having a white Christmas. But then again, I love being able to go to the beach in December and still get an awesome tan! LOL!

    So beautiful! I imagine the decorations are a lot different in a tropical paradise like your’s;) Santa looks the same though.

    Great pics!
