The Story Behind Aloha Friday Posts
In the Hawaiian language, the word “Aloha” has several meanings.
Among them are: hello, good-bye, love, peace and compassion.
Aloha Friday began in the early 1960’s and a watered down version of of the tradition, casual Friday, spread from the islands. Ironically, the people of Hawaii take Aloha Friday pretty serious. It is a day to dress more casual, many leave work early, and join friends at Happy Hour.
I am fortunate to travel to Hawaii on business and on this trip while sitting on my lanai, I was thinking about the concept of Aloha Friday. I thought this would be a good fit for this blog and so I would like to institute an occasional Aloha Friday post.
The idea behind my Aloha Friday posts is that they are intended to be short and easy. It might just be a picture, a quote, or a link to an interesting website or resource. Easy.
So on that note I end with the lyrics to It’s Aloha Friday by Kimo Kahoana & Paul Natto
It’s Aloha Friday, no work ‘til Monday.
Doo be doo, doo doo be, doo be doo, be doo be doo!
