5 Slang Phrases That Perfectly Sum Up Why Hawaii Is So Damn Happy

There's more to it than just the beaches and aloha.

 Carla Herreria by Associate Editor, HuffPost Hawaii

Hawaii is often defined by its awe-inspiring beauty, but for those lucky enough to live there, the Aloha State is much more than an idyllic paradise.

It consistently ranks as one of the happiest states in the country, and its unique mixture of cultures, spirit of aloha, and carpe diem lifestyle can all be summed up in the words -- or rather, the slang -- of the islands' kama'aina, the people who call Hawaii home.

Below, five phrases and words unique to Hawaii that can teach all of us to live happier, more fulfilling lives.

As most of the world knows by now, Mt. Kilauea is certainly on a roll and Madam Pele is not in a very good mood to say the least!  Have you heard of the curse that Mt. Kilauea, our active volcano holds inside of her?  It is compliments of the Goddess of Fire: Pele.  It seems so harmless to want to take home a small bit of lava rock from the volcano on the Big Island, but you may want to read on…

It is said that the Fire Goddess Pele considers all of those rocks her children, and should anyone abduct one of her children, they will suffer any number of maladies.  It is a curse of bad luck, be it health, financial or emotional, some have said it had brought them ruin, and they mail the rocks back to the summit.  Piles of lava continue to arrive

What could be better than spending an evening enjoying one of the most authentic Hawaiian luaus? My friend and I were treated to a night out of island music, great food, drinks and entertainment at the Feast at Lele held beach-side at 505 Front Street, Lahaina, Maui. Whether you arrive by land or by sea - this is a special island treat.

The Feast at Lele is a first class luau under the stars, complete with intimate dining and white table linens - not the usual fare at most luaus. Every table had a great view of the dancers with the backdrop of the setting sun over West Maui. Couples enjoy individual table side service while feasting on 4 courses of local island cuisine and a very entertaining and educational trip thru the South Pacific. We tasted
