Only in Hawaii Holidays : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

Besides the regular holidays (New Year's Day, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day), Hawaii State offices, City and County offices, and banks are closed for Prince Jonah Kuhio Kalanianaole Day (March), Good Friday (March/April), King Kamehameha I Day (June), Admission Day (August), and Election Day (November).

State and City and County Offices are open on Discoverer's Day. Seems State of Hawaii and City and County employees had too many paid holidays so the State decided to give them Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day and take away Discoverer's Day.

What about May day is Lei day for Hawaii Public School. We always had fun on this day. Not official but celebrated, and then there is boys day when People hang out the fish for each boy in the family, always fun to see.
