Birthdays are big on Maui.

• A huge baby luau is traditional when a child reaches their first birthday.

& A “Yakudoshi” is celebrated by Japanese at age 33 for women and 42 for men. There are also some other years (25 and 61 for men) where it is celebrated, but 42 (and 33 for women) is the most celebrated.

& Local folks don't say "I will be 33" with a sigh - rather they say, "I will make 33 this year," with great pride.

& Age is an accomplishment. Isn't that refreshing?

A toast to your health!

There are two toasts you must know if you attend a local wedding on Maui.

• "Bonzai!" is perfect if the couple has any Japanese ancestry.

• "Mobuhay!" is the way to say it at a Filipino reception.
