10 Fast Facts About Hawaii:

1/ The current official Hawaiian alphabet consists of just 12 letters. The vowels, A,E,I,O,U and these seven consonants H,K,L,M,N,P and W. Originally the alphabet also had D,F,G,R,S,T,V,Y and Z when the language was first developed by Protestant Missionaries in 1822, but these were later dropped in in 1826 when the developers voted to eliminate them in order to make it easier for people to learn the language.

2/ Hawaii was the 50th state admitted to the union on August 20th, 1959; and is the only US State which is made up entirely of Islands.

3/ Both Hawaii and Arizona do not observe daylight saving time. The time in Hawaii is 10 hours behind GMT (Greenwich Mean Time) throughout the year. Prior to 1983 in official documentation the time in Hawaii was referred to as 'Alaska-Hawaii Standard Time', but it is now instead called Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time.

4/ The tallest mountain in Hawaii is Mauna Kea which stands at 13,796 feet above the sea, but which if followed right to its base (below the sea) rises above 33,500 feet which is actually taller than Mount Everest!

5/ Most of the vegetation on the islands of Hawaii naturally grow on the North-East side of the islands which face the wind.

6/ Mount Wai'ale'ale on the island of Kaua'i has the third highest average rainfall on Earth at around 460 inches or 11.7 meters of rainfall every year. The only places that are wetter on average are Mawsynram in India (467.4 inches a year) and Lloro in Columbia which is the wettest place on Earth with an average rainfall of 523.6 inches (13.3 meters) a year.

7/ There are only two seasons in Hawaii. The wet season which runs from October to April, and the dry season from May to October.

Honolulu - 75 / 88
Hilo - 69 / 83
Lihu'e - 74 / 85
Kahului - 71 / 88

9/ The official state mammal of Hawaii is the Humpback Whale, the official state flower is the Yellow Hibiscus, and the official state fish is the tongue-tying Humuhumunukunukuapua, which is also (thankfully!) usually shortened to the Rectangular Triggerfish.

10/ The population of Hawaii has grown every 10 years that it has been measured since 1900. In 1900 the population of the islands of Hawaii was 154,001. But by 2010 that had grown to 1,360,301 people.
