The best Kingdom holiday that should be celebrated is January 17, in honor of the revolution of 1893. Those celebratory devices remaining after New Years can be put to good use -- fireworks, noisemakers, party hats, and the little paper umbrellas that decorate a mai tai.

It's a real stretch to have a holiday for Leleiohoku, also known as Billy Pitt. He died at age 23 and thus had very few accomplishments. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment is that he died, thereby opening the door for his sister Lydia to be named crown princess to succeed Kalakaua. But then, she didn't turn out to be so terrific either.

Actually, since our nation is the U.S., those wanting to revive the royal holidays might consider celebrating the birthday of King George II.

There goes the haole again, trying to tell other races how to run their lives.

How quaint though that you at least learned how to say dates. Your rudimentary knowledge of Hawaiian at least is at kindergarten level.

This is a very funny comment. Very interesting because everything in it is totally inappropriate and clearly displays both the ignorance and racism of the writer.

1. Haole trying to tell other racers how to run their lives? Apparently the commenter thinks the Hawaiian Kingdom was only about people of one race. Commenting on the national holidays of a multiracial nation cannot in any way be regarded as directed against any particular race. The commenter is clearly preoccupied with race.

2. "There goes the haole again." How does the commenter know I'm a haole? And so what anyway? What if I were Filipino, would the commenter start out the comment by saying "there goes the filipino again"?

3. "...you at least learned how to say dates." What the heck are you talking about? The only date I mentioned was January 17, 1893. But even regarding that date, there was nothing special about the way I said it. What the heck are you talking about?

4. "Your rudimentary knowledge of Hawaiian at least is at kindergarten level." Huh? I did not write any portion of my comment in Hawaiian language. How do you know what my level of Hawaiian language knowledge is?

That entire comment by "elijahhawaii" shows him/her to be a total ignoramus and idiot. Can't even do a decent job of ad hominem argument or character assassination.

1. as if no one knows who you are....
2. That said, you are a haole. You and your ancestors did not originate the Hawaiian language, nor the Hawaiians as a race. You and your worthless mana'o are irrelevant.

Oh and your knowledge of the Hawaiian language IS rudimentary and flawed. If you do not know how I am so sure of that, it is because you are too self-absorbed and conceited ever to have noticed.

Wow. These clowns still don't get it. Everything they have written has zero relevance to what was in the newspaper article and also zero relevance to what I said. They are so full of themselves, trying to talk stink about me when they can't even focus in anything relevant. Maybe they're on ice or crack or something. Or just plain insane.

Ken, I've received 'replies' from these imbeciles, too - which have led me to believe they are DOE gophers.

You are so arrogant and narcissistic that you think you can slide that original post in without anyone picking up on your true intent. The article authored by Keao NeSmith referred to specifice and legitimate holidays of the Hawaiian Kingdom, of which the date you mentioned did NOT belong. I feel bad that I have to draw that picture for someone who thinks it is so far smarter than everyone else, especially the Hawaiian race.

ERGO, you were just being incendiary, bilious, and racistly provacative with your arrogant description of it as a Kingdom holiday to pop fireworks. Then again that is par for the elitist haole golf course for you.

Your original post above has no more relevance to that article than you and your OTHER thinly veiled insults towards the Hawaiians as a people.

Therefore, since you cannot take the heat, old man, do NOT start the fire. Is the simple enough for you to understand? Dumbasz
