President, first family returning to Hawaii for holidays

WASHINGTON, D.C. (HawaiiNewsNow) - President Obama and the first family are scheduled to spend Christmas and New Year's in Hawaii again this year.

According to a spokesperson at the White House, the president is scheduled to arrive in Hawaii December 17. However, that date may change because business in Washington may delay the trip, the spokesperson said.

Also, First Lady Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha may come to Hawaii earlier, ahead of the president.

The White House said there is no set date for Obama's return to Washington, but it will probably be a few days after the New Year.

There's no word yet on where the first family will be staying. In past visits, they have stayed in a rented compound in Kailua.
