Poʻalima Hemolele

Good Friday

Some of you are at home today, enjoying a much needed break in the name of a holiday. When I was working in the school system, I know I enjoyed the holiday.  But now I don’t work in the school system OR get the holiday. I will work on Poʻalima Hemolele and make sure it is extra good for me.

Poʻalima – Fifth night

Hemolele – perfect, holy, flawless

You might also hear Good Friday being referred to as Poʻalima Maikaʻi since maikaʻi literally means good.

Regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs, have a Poʻalima Hemolele today AND every Poʻalima.
