More the celebrating the better? 1915.

[Found under: “Na Kuhinia o ka Manawa.”]

The celebration [hi’uwai] of the people of China [Aina Pua] is approaching, but perhaps there will only be a few because New Years was celebrated by some Chinese on this past New Years Day.

[Konohi is the lunar calendar new year. It probably comes from the Hawaiianization of the Chinese Kung Hei as in Kun Hei Fat Choi (恭喜發財).]

(Aloha Aina, 2/6/1915, p. 3
