Merry Christmas, Kauai!
Ed Kawamura is already looking past Christmas as Kawamura Farm Enterprises hosted its hammer-making Wednesday — the eve of Christmas Eve. He is getting ready for the annual mochi-making (the traditional way) on Sunday.
Gerald Ako (great job with the opening of the 85th AJA baseball season!) might still have kadomatsu (remember, no kadomatsu installation on Dec. 29, and you need to do it before Dec. 31!) to benefit the HGEA Charles Kendall Scholarship Fund.
Liz Hahn of Kauai Bettas is thrilled with the holiday season because there are no shows and specimen such as her Merry Christmas fish are available for customers at the Kauai Community Market Saturdays at the Kauai Community College (what flavor mochi is Sandi Kato-Klutke going to have this week?). Elvrine Chow said her brother-in-law won’t be having kadomatsu, and it’s sad that Cynthia Chiang is leaving.
Kudos to Chantal Zarbaugh, Stacie Chiba Miguel and all the Kukui Grove ohana for getting through another great holiday season! Hope everyone gets a moment to catch breaths, and now, off to see if we can catch up with Arnold Leong and his elves for dinner with the homeless.
