President Barack Obama will be returning to Honolulu, where he was born, for the third straight Christmas, three sources told the Star-Advertiser today.
No immediate details were available, but the last two years, the president has spent at a vacation home in Kailua.
Last year, he and his family were here for 11 days including Christmas and New Year’s. Day trips included visits to the Honolulu Zoo, Sea Life Park and shave ice shops.
Obama also spent nearly two weeks here in December 2008 when he was president-elect. That trip was highlighted by the scattering of ashes of his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham, in waters off Lanai Lookout.
He also visited Oahu in August and October 2008.
