Mele Kalikimaka is a Christmas song sung as a warm greeting from Hawaii and is a Hawwiianized version of Merry Christmas. The Hawaiian language does not include all the sounds found in the English language notably the letter “R” as such the substitute of the “L’s” for the “R’s” therefore it is not Hawaiian for Merry Christmas but merely just a translation. The song was written in 1949 by Robert Alex Anderson, but has been sung by greats such as Bing Crosby, Davy Jones and Jimmy Buffett and has many renditions.
This is where our story begins, it is Kimo and Lopaka’s first Christmas with their kids, but Lopaka doesn’t think he is going to be able to enjoy it because they have had their first fight. Johnny and Aloha wanted to have a circle jerk on Christmas Eve and Kimo and Lopaka had been invited Kimo wanted to go and this made Lopaka mad. Johnny had been his lover and when Kimo had wanted a three way things got out of hand and, they had almost lost each other. So Lopaka couldn’t understand why Kimo would want to do a circle jerk with them. It could lead to something very bad. Kimo just wanted to show Lopaka off letting the other guys know that he had Lopaka and no one else could and to show off the tattoos of each others names on the others bodies. When Kimo explained all that to Lopaka then Lopaka decided to go.
They then joined their family for the tree lighting ceremony, when they were home again Kimo and the kids were shaking the presents under the tree and Kimo couldn’t help but rip the paper by accident just to see what was in them. Just wait there is a little mystery to the presents and to the food that is cooked up. Also they don’t put out milk and cookies for santa, but you will have to read the story to find out what they do put out.
