On December 17, HKN held their annual Christmas Party for the inductees and officers. It was held in the iLab on the UH Manoa campus from 5:30 till around 7:30 pm. It was a time to relax and celebrate the completion of the Fall 2016 semester. For inductees, a time to celebrate the passing of our first half of HKN pledging. The main event consisted of a “White Elephant” gift game between participants. The presents were to be around $10 to $15, wrapped in full holiday fashion, and placed on a table in the iLab. Individuals were then selected at random to choose a gift to unwrap. If they so desired, people could “steal” an unwrapped gift. However, the gift in question could only be stolen up to 3 times. Individuals who had their gifts stolen would then choose another gift from the table. Some of these gifts included gift cards, a portable speaker, chocolates, various taquilla flavorings, and even a wastebasket. Proceeding the white elephant game was dinner and socialization. Overall, a perfect way to end the year with the HKN honor society.
