Honolulu Hale (City Hall) turns into a Hall of Trees created by the city departments. This year's theme was "Shaka under the Sea" - Shaka is the hand sign for "hang loose". Above is an octopus from Community Services, made from Pork and Beans cans (I think the octopus ate the Spam) ....
Emergency Services topped their tree with a octopus wearing a Santa's hat and police badge!
One office adopted the surfing Lorax ....

Sid from ICE AGE makes a guest appearance in snorkeling gear.
Another Santa snorkeler ...
.... and a Santa with a lei! What's your favorite holiday decoration in your house, neighborhood, or town? One randomly selected commenter from this week's blogs wins a book choice from my convention stash. This giveaway is open to all readers. Comments are open through Saturday, December 29, 10 pm in Hawaii. I'll post the winner on Sunday, December 30, on SOS Aloha.
