Lies get thrown in the ocean as traditions .
Kendra1949 says: 8 Months AgoLei is a garland or wreath. More loosely defined, a lei is any series of objects strung together with the intent to be worn.
The most popular concept of a lei in Hawaiian culture is a wreath of flowers draped around the neck presented upon arriving or leaving as a symbol of affection.
This concept was popularized through tourism between the Hawaiian Islands and the continental United States in the 19th and 20th centuries.
Leis get thrown in the ocean on many occasions
and 2 are the most popular ones.
If you are being given a lei when you arrive in Hawaii, before you leave you should throw it in the ocean because that means you will be coming back to Hawaii.
The other one is during funerals, people throw
leis into the ocean and yes sometimes when
they visit Hawaii again if they don't live here,
they will throw another lei into the ocean as a memory.
And always remember to cut a lei and then only throw the flowers into the ocean.
