The Honolulu Hale, which can be simply translated as Honolulu's City Hall building, is both a stand-out piece of building and an important Oahu landmark. The pink architecture hosts a number of different events, from concerts to artistic exhibits, and is always bustling with activity. Maybe the best known thing about Honolulu Hale is the Christmas decorations they put up in mid-December. More than just lights and a wreath, the place goes all out for the holidays, with towering statues of "Shaka" Santa and his girl Mrs. Clause. Both are dressed like they are relaxing in Hawaii, and along with their ensemble of penguins and reindeer, offer one of the most popular Holiday backdrops for photos in Honolulu. Holidays or not, this over eighty year old structure is always a worthwhile place to visit.
