Holiday Greetings in Hawaii

I think most people know how to say Merry Christmas in Hawaiian from the Christmas Carol “Mele Kalikimaka”. I was looking on Google for the Hawaiian words for Happy New Year when I found a treasure trove of Holiday greetings. Here are some good ones to start:

Happy Holidays ~ Hau’oli Lanui (pronounced how-oh-lee la-new-ee)
Merry Christmas ~ Mele Kalikimaka (pronounced may-lay ka-lee-key-ma-ka)
Happy Hanukkah ~ Hau’oli Hanukaha (pronounced how-oh-lee ha-new-ka-ha)
Happy Kwanzaa ~ Hau’oli Kawanaka (pronounced how-oh-lee ka-wa-na-ka)
Happy New Year ~ Hau’oli Makahiki Hou (pronounced how-oh-lee ma-ka-hee-key ho)
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year ~ Mele Kalikimaka me ka Hau’oli Makahiki Hou
Happy Hanukkah and New Year ~ Hau’oli Hanukaha me ka Makahiki Hou
