My family (husband, 13 yr old son and myself) will be spending 2 weeks on Kauai over the Christmas holiday. We are booked at Waikomo Stream for the first week and Kiahuna Plantation for the second week. Wanted to spend all our time at Kiahuna as it is our favorite place but due to late trip planning wasn't able to make it work. Read about the construction in the Waikomo Stream area but I don't think it will be a problem for us as a 4 hour time difference makes us early risers on Kauai and we don't spend much time in our condo during the daytime hours.
My big question is what to do on Christmas Eve and Day on Kauai? We've never spent Christmas away from our home and extended family before but wanted to do a Kauai trip with our son and not have him miss a bunch of school. I'm worried that even though we are in a tropical paradise vs. cold North Dakota plains we may feel a little homesick unless we can come up with a great plan to mark the holiday. I did see that Smith's has their luau on Christmas Eve so that is one possibility but I would definitely appreciate any other suggestions you may have.
