Making Hawaiian Leis

Tomorrow Nicole graduates from high school. We are going to try to make Hawaiian leis for her and a few close friends. I have roses, Lilly's and carnations in many colors. It should be allot of fun (I hope)! I made leis once when I was a campus pastor. I've seen the most beautiful leis at many graduations in America. A lei is a wreath of love and honor. It reminds me of the Laural wreaths placed on the heads of champions. It's a fun tradition! I didn't wear one when I graduated, but always thought they were very cool! She doesn't wear a cap and gowned. That isn't a German thing. I honestly don't know what to expect. I've never been to a German graduation. For the most part German's make a very big deal of the first day of school, not the end. When Juergen got his PhD, he went to some basement at the University and picked it up from a clerk.

and this is how to make a candy lei. Maybe we can do this too!

who doesn't love candy?
