Hilo is the first city in the Hawaiian archipelago to greet the new day with the rising of the sun at Kumukahi, but the word “hilo” refers to other things in Hawaiian culture. The phase of the new moon is named Hilo, marking the beginning of a new lunar cycle. It’s also a style of lei making that involves braiding and binding different plants together to create something be given and worn with love.
We have each considered Hilo to be our home at some point in our lives and it’s where Holoholo Girls originated. Our friendships were forged here and it continues to host our ongoing evolution.
Because of its many beautiful connotations of new starts and the constant weaving of lives together, we would like to wish you a Happy Hilo 2014. From our homes and hearts to yours, we wish you and your loved ones health and safety in this upcoming year and that it will be filled with new adventures and opportunities for growth.
