The lei, wreath of flowers, is a very powerful symbol of love and aloha. Giving and receiving a lei is a great way to celebrate or honor someone and their achievements. There are many types of leis; flower, money, candy and shell leis just to name a few. They can be worn, received, or given for almost any occasion. Leis are most common at graduations and for celebrations and parties.
Graduation season is right around the corner. Lei giving at graduations has become a popular tradition and is a perfect gift! Giving a lei to a graduate symbolizes the end of a chapter and embarking in a new one.
