Hip hip HOORAY! Hawaii has been a State for 62 years, and part of the USA for nearly twice that long — 123 years. The first bill for Statehood was introduced in Congress by Hawaii Delegate Jonah Kuhio Kalaniana’ole 102 years ago in 1919: that’s [ex]Prince Kuhio, who would have been King if the monarchy had not been overthrown; happy to be an American. So break out your noisemakers and funny hats stashed in the closet for New Years, and take the opportunity to celebrate.
