Got Hawaiian?

Got Hawaiian?

So I'm standing in the checkout line at Barnes & Noble and I'm looking at this rotating rack with mini-gifts. You know, the little boxes of miniature treasures like "Mini Zen Garden," or "Mini Rubber Duckies," or "Mini Bonsai Tree". You've seen them. While scanning quickly through the boxes, thinking I would find something that would be a cute stocking stuffer, my eyes stop at a "Mini Hula Instruction Kit". I pick it up and look on the back for the contents:

1 plastic, multi-colored lei
1 hair comb with a flower attached
1 diagram for hand motions
and last but not least
2 finger castanets

Excuse me? Finger castanets? In my hula dancing experience of nearly 30 years, nay, in my 44 years of life as a polynesian, I have NEVER known castanets to be a part of our native culture.

Next thing you know, I'll find a "Mini Fiesta Kit" with a grass skirt inside.
