Aloha and Welcome to Hawaii’s Most Hawaiian Hotel, Kaanapali Beach Hotel. Join HawaiiOnTv.com in celebrating The Year of the Dragon!
At this year’s Chinese New Year Sunday Brunch Celebration everyone enjoyed the magical Lion Dance ceremonies, full of hope and excitement for the year to come. The Lions are considered mythical beings, as there are no lions in China.
During the ceremony the lions are attracted by firecrackers and drumming. The crowd then feeds donation envelopes to the lions. Finally the lion eats a head of lettuce to gain the final donation, a transfer of energy that teaches everyone the lesson that you can not get something for nothing. You must give to recieve.
There was plenty of excitement, energy and Aloha at this year’s celebration. Mahalo to everyone who came out to be a part of it all.
Kaanapali Beach Hotel is located at:
2525 Kaanapali Parkway – Lahaina Maui, Hawaii 96761

To preserve a sense of serenity, rooms are free of distracting televisions and clock radios.
