Hauʻoli Makahiki Hou! It’s Hawaiian for “Happy New Year!”

Although we get a little side-tracked with a pro-Kathy Griffin rant, we also manage to stay on topic long enough to cover our favorite aspects of a fresh New Year, many of them from our time growing up in Hawaii:

  • a new planner

  • watching the ball drop

  • fire crackers (not to be confused with fireworks)

  • traditional Japanese New Year foods

  • cleaning the house

  • and more
