Hawaii’s Lei may be the Lehua, produced from blossoms of ‘Ohi’, a Lehua tree which develops around the slopes from the Volcano.Formally designed a vacation in 1929, and continues up to now. The record for that world’s longest Lei was set in the 81st celebration of Lei Day in 2008. Unofficially the Lei measured greater than a mile long.
