Christmas is an important time for just about everyone, regardless of background. It comes just a week before the end of the year, and most businesses close up so people can spend the wintertime celebrations with their families. At the same time, plenty of places near Kahului will be hosting events the weekend before, on Christmas Eve, and some on December 25th itself.
For the year 2023, December 25th lies on a Monday. That means Christmas will be on a Sunday this year, December 24th. Since New Year’s Eve always happens a week after Christmas Day, the next big holiday isn’t far off.
