We know one way to make an impression on your valentine, is to wish them “happy valentine’s day in ‘olelo hawai’i (Hawaiian language). Valentine’s day is a modern day celebration; therefore not rooted in ancient Hawaiian tradition and culture. However, V-Day is designated to celebrate love; and the Hawaiian culture surely grounds itself in one very important notion and that is aloha.

More so if you find yourself on the island of Maui. There are many terrific ways to make February 14th, a dreamy holiday. Here are a couple of romantic ideas to set the ambiance for you to wish your sweetheart a Happy Valentine’s Day in Hawaiian:
