What Is The Meaning Of 808?

Living in Hawaii for the last 30 years,  when someone says "808" it instantly brings happiness, warmth and most of all "Aloha".  808 is actually the area code for the State of Hawaii,  also called the "808 State" there are several business's with "808" in the name. But its more than just a number, it brings a smile to someones face if you mention it. I have been at the tables in Vegas (its easy to spot someone from Hawaii), and if you were to look over at them and make simple statement that included "808" in it - you would experience the "Aloha" instantly. 

It is also a lucky number for Asians and we all know what a diverse background Hawaii has and its Asian population. 

Why do I bring this up today? .......... Because today, 808 has another meaning to me.

Today's  meaning for "808" .........  Today marks my "808th" blog!

Big Mahalo's Activerain for being here with me the last 8 years, and bringing me to this milestone! You are a huge part of my success story and I am glad we met. 

With that, let me share a little "808" with you!

I had the pleasure of living in Honolulu for 3 years when I was a Navy wife. My 2 brothers are still there, although one is due to retire soon and will be moving back to SC where his retirement dollars will go much further. 

Those were three amazing years in my life and I consider you truly blessed!

Thank you for sharing the amazing photos!

Mahalo Lance Owens (RS) . I do know that 808 is the area code there but I did not know what the blog post was about until I started reading it. 

Congrats on 808 blog posts! That's amazing! Great job! I've just recently started using ActiveRain regularly so I've got a LONG way to go to catch up with you. Quite motivating!

Andrew Mooers , I was just wondering if your state celebrates the number like Hawaii does? Do you have business with "207" in the name and decals with it, or is it more a Hawaii thing?
