Lei Ceremony… Sharing of Leis
For those of us who call Hawaii our home, the flower lei is a symbol of love. It is also a symbol of things that are temporal and fragile. A lei will last a day or two and then it is gone. Our lives are like the lei within the span of eternity. Therefore, live with tender consideration for each other, continue to love one another and your marriage will last. May the leis you now offer each other be recognized for the love that you do have for one another.
The Hawaiians have a traditional saying, “Honi Ka Waha”, kiss him/her on the mouth.
