Best Use of Lights:  2009 First Prize Winners


Maxine and Florence Rasay used every Christmas light they could get to participate in the 2009 Hanama`ulu Christmas Lighting Contest!  Thinking they still did not have enough lights when the judges were expected to make their round in Hanama`ulu Town, they turned on the lights and left the rest to the judges!


The Christmas Story, including the Nativity Scene & the Star of Bethlehem that shined brightly when Christ was born, as well as other joys that Christmas brings, like Santa and Snowman's replacement:

a hula dancing Snowwoman! -- are all part of Maxine & Florence Rasay’s winning entry.
