Luau is a celebration of a delicious feast, coupled with eccentric music, dance, and gossip. It is similar to Thanksgiving.

Some popular dishes one will find in a luau platter are Kalau (shredded pork), Laulau (meat wrapped in taro leaves), Haupia (delicious coconut pudding), Poi (taro plant root that goes well with any dish), tropical fruits, etc.
