Happy Thanksgiving

Today is a traditional American holiday of reflection and gratitude for the love and joy that comes from the strong bonds of family and friends.

Ancient Hawaiians had a very similar celebration, called makahiki, a joyful affair where people from around the island would gather together with song and dancing, and share the fruits of their labors, reaped either from the earth or the ocean.

Whether it is called Thanksgiving or Makahiki, the same principle of food, family, and fun can be found.

From our family, to yours, Happy Thanksgiving!
