Obama and family celebrate Christmas in Hawaii with gifts, carols and church
"President Barack Obama exchanged gifts with his family, sang carols and attended church services as he celebrated Christmas in Hawaii.
The president and his family woke up early Sunday to exchange gifts, the White House said, then had breakfast and sang Christmas carols at the multimillion-dollar house they rent in Kailua Beach, near Honolulu.
Later in the morning, the Obamas made the short trip to the chapel at Marine Corps Base Hawaii for Christmas church services. The president dressed casually in dark khaki pants and a short-sleeve blue shirt, and his wife and daughters donned sundresses for Christmas services on a bright and breezy day on the island of Oahu.
The White House said the president and Michelle Obama would return to the base later in the day to visit with service members and their families, as they have done in past years. Many of the Marines stationed at the base have deployed to Afghanistan, as well as Iraq, where the last American troops were withdrawn earlier this month."

The right wing flips out any time he goes to Hawaii ... and he should have been wearing red and green, just like the baby Jesus would want!!
