New Years Eve in Hawaii

We celebrate New Years like the mainland folks celebrate 4th of July.  I guess it’s a custom cause for the Japanese and Chinese the New Year is to be celebrated with food, drink, family friends and lots of fireworks.  Maybe this was handed down from generations here in Hawaii cause it’s not only the the Japanese and Chinese that celebrate it in such a fashion.  We all do.  As far back as I can remember we do it this way with lots of firecrackers and fireworks.  Just a good time to spend together and now we Karaoke in the back room of my mom’s house.

At midnight everyone comes out and welcomes in the new year.                           

 And this is how bad the air gets. 

Looks like fun huh?
