ALOHA is the most uttered word here in Hawaii.
ALOHA means hello and goodbye.
There are 5 Hawaiian words that represents each letter of the word ALOHA
that’s behind the meaning of the word ALOHA.
A = Akahai: Kindness, Tenderness
L = Lokahi: Unity, Harmony
O = ‘Olu’olu: Agreeable, Pleasantness
H = Ha’aha’a: Humility, Modesty
A = Ahonui: Patience, Perseverance
The word ALOHA may have originated in Hawaii but Aloha is not specific only to Hawaii.
It is a mindset that depends upon acceptance, caring and love for one’s self, others and the world around them. Aloha is applicable to practice by everyone anywhere.
LIVE LIFE ALOHA!

ALOHA! Thanks for giving us a few words to use on our next trip to Hawaii. I didn’t know it was actually an acronym. Now I’m wondering is MAHALO also an acronym?
well Aloha to you also. I did know that it meant hello as well as goodbye but I didn’t know all the rest of that. Very interesting and now I like the word even more 🙂
