No needd to worry at all. A few years ago I was there over the same period and it's about 24-25C during the day. At night you can walk around in a t shirt and shorts. Very much beach weather. Coming from Sydney I found the weather to be very similar except a bit warmer at night.

If you are driving around, ther was a bit of rain around the mountain areas and near the north shore while I was driving through, but wasn't cold. There was no rain or cold at Waikiki. You will have a great time there over Christmas. They have New Year's fireworks at Aloha Tower.

We stay on Maui and the Big Island for 2 weeks during the holidays, and are headed over again this year. We had only 1 early early morning of rain in Maui, but everyday (14 days - 12/15-12/30) we had beautiful weather!! 80s+ and sunny. Perfect!!

That has been our "time frame" for our Oahu vacation for the past 7 years... with the exception of one year where OMG it rained for about 7 days STRAIGHT, we have been blessed with gorgeous weather!!!!

The days are warm and blissfully SUNNY and the evenings are balmy and perfect :)

Even when you have a little liquid sunshine, it is still wonderful... you are in HAWAII for Christmas and I can't think of a better way to ring in the New Year!!!

It will either be sunny and warm with a few trade showers that last just a few minutes and are like a mist, or it will pour rain. No way to tell. It is after all the rainy period on the islands. Surf, more than likely will be huge on the north shore so for spending time on the beach head south!! The time frame you are looking at is very busy so if you don't have accommodations or a rental car yet, better get on it ASAP!!
