WAIKIKI (HawaiiNewsNow) - There's tons of sand in the lobby of the Sheraton Waikiki — and it's supposed to be there.
The hotel's holiday display features huge sand sculptures that depict the 12 Days of Christmas.
The sand sculptures have become something of a tradition for the Sheraton.
Past sculptures paid tribute to the Hokulea and Namaka, the sea goddess.
Sandsational Sand Sculpting, a Florida company, has already finished up two sand sculptures for this year's display and is working on more.
The first sculpture to be completed — a Santa enjoying mai tais — is made of eight tons of sand.
