The Kauai Tradition Continues!

 


The 18th Annual Festival of Lights is now open at Kauai’s Historic County Building in Lihue, showcasing Aunt Josie’s Holiday Decoration exhibit. Have you ever seen a Christmas tree made of 7,500 green toothpicks? How about wreaths formed from egg cartons?  Table decorations constructed with seed pods? How about a chandelier fashioned from wire coat hangers?!!

According to Wikipedia, Auntie Josie Chansky transformed humble materials into sparkling treasures that she displayed at her homes on Oahu and Kauai.  In 1996 the exhibit moved to the Historic County Building and every year since… Friends, Guests, and Visitors from around the world get to see Auntie Josie’s homemade crafts and feel the presence of her warm spirit.

The exhibit is now open every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday though December 21st – as well as Christmas Eve and December 27th!  Admission is FREE and everyone is invited to stop by for a visit. There is plenty of time to browse crafts created by Kauai artisans where many Holiday gifts are waiting for you!

 

Are you excited? So are we! We’ll see you there!

I've always wanted to spend the New Year's on Kauai. The Night of Meditation sounds like a great way to end the year with gratitude. This will bring more positive things and abundance in the new year. Sounds wonderful. Kauai is the perfect place to meditate!

The best thing about this position is that you can achieve whatever you want. If you put in the time and effort, you can be very successful at amazing information about the online hotel booking sites. Unlike most websites, gives you the different result about the hotel comparing rates and rooms and booking details.
