9 Holiday Staples You’ll Need to Survive Christmas In Hawaii

When you think of a traditional holiday season, the Hawaiian Islands are probably the last place to cross your mind. Not only will you only see snow if you head to the summit of Mauna Kea but we do Christmas a little bit different around here. After all, in Hawaii, Santa Claus doesn’t arrive in a sleigh pulled by reindeer but instead visits Hawaii in an outrigger canoe. Whether you’ve lived in Hawaii your entire life, you’ve just moved to the islands, or you’re simply planning an island getaway for the holidays, there are a few things you should have if you want to survive Christmas in Hawaii.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing.
