Five Free Christmas Activities on Oahu

There are many budget-friendly timeshares available to rent on Oahu, the third largest, and the most populous, of the islands of Hawaii. Taking the family to Honolulu for a Hawaiian Christmas vacation is an easy decision to make when you see how much you can save by renting a timeshare.

Once you are settled into your Honolulu timeshare, you'll have time to seek out the many free things to do that bring the magical Christmas season to life, even on a tropical island. You'll find most of these Christmas festivities easily accessible in Honolulu and along Waikiki Beach.

  1. Honolulu City Lights. Honolulu celebrates Christmas all through December by lighting up the city from the financial district to downtown with dazzling Christmas light displays. While enjoying the city lights also stop in at the Honolulu Hale (City Hall) to view the spectacular Christmas trees and wreaths in the lobby.

  2. At the Ala Moana Center's Centerstage, you'll delight in afternoon performances by keiki (children) as they earnestly strum their ukuleles. Dressed in colorful aloha shirts and mumus, these little performers will put a smile on your face with their renditions of fun Christmas songs.

  3. The Iolani Palace is where you can watch "lovely Hula hands" as dancers perform beautiful Hawaiian dances to traditional Christmas music. Held by the gazebo on the lawn in front of the Palace, these free presentations are usually held every Friday afternoon during December.

  4. The Honolulu Boys Choir holds a concert of Christmas music on the Sunday before Christmas at the fourth floor Grand Lanai of the Embassy Suites-Waikiki Beach Walk. Free and open to the public as seating allows, the beautiful strains of holiday music will put you in a wonderful Christmas mood.

  5. The Kawaiahao Church in Honolulu holds Sunday services in the Hawaiian language. Made from hand-carried coral reef rocks, it took 1000 men to build this historic church in the mid 1800's. Sit in on a December service, enjoy the celebrations of the season in the melodic Hawaiian tongue, and discover the true essence of Hawaii.
And don't miss Santa's arrival on Waikiki Beach - in an out-rigger canoe! (The reindeer are enjoying their sun-splashed Hawaiian Christmas vacation too much to join him!)

    The first time I went to Honolulu was in December - I've seen the little kids performing at the Ala Moana Shopping Center - one of the cutest things I've ever seen.
