ALO-HA – Hawaiian
Since the middle of the 19th century, it also has come to be used as an English greeting to say goodbye and hello. Currently, it is mostly used in the sense of hello…
That is what we have been lead to believe.
There’s a little more to it then that.
ALO means “to be with, to share the experience, here and now”
HA means “affection, joy”
together ALOHA means “to love is to be happy with”
