    Lyrics & Music: Leonard Hawk

    May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii
    Garlands of flowers everywhere
    All of the colors in the rainbow
    Maidens with blossoms in their hair

    Flowers that mean we should be happy
    Throwing aside a load of care
    Oh, May Day is Lei Day in Hawaii
    May Day is happy days out there


    According to Harry B. Soria, the celebration of May 1 as Lei Day was invented in 1927 by island artist and writer Donald Benson Blanding and Grace Tower Warren. Don Blanding is also credited with the invention of the custom of tossing your lei overboard when you sailed away from Honolulu. If the lei came back to shore (and most did) it supposedly meant you would return.
