THIS JUST IN! Santa spotted leaving the North Pole in the middle of the night only days before Christmas. Where could he be going?

Hawai‘i, of course! What better place to relax?

A harried and stressed out Santa decides to leave it all for a break in Islands. Once here, he gets some sun, catches some waves, and realizes—with help from two Kailua kids—that he can not only take Hawai‘i with him, but share it with the world, just in time for Christmas.

Told in rhyme and through local newspaper articles highlighting “Santa spottings” throughout the island, this story is sure to inspire Christmas spirit.
