We hope you had Mele Kalikimaka just like the Obamas
The United States' first family, the Obamas, spent the Christmas Holidays in Oahu celebrating quietly with their extended family. President and Mrs. Obama did not exchange gifts this year, according to White House spokesmen. Instead, they focused the holiday on giving to the children and service to the community. Mrs. Obama, along with her daughters Malia and Sasha, and the First Dog, Bo, delivered cookies to the Children's National Medical Center earlier this week. The Obamas celebrated the holidays with the President's sister, Maya Soetoro-Ng, and her family and will extend their Hawaiian trip into January.
There is nothing else like Christmas in Hawaii. If you ever have the opportunity to visit Oahu at the holidays, jump on it.
