Happy Kwanzaa!


Reader, happy Kwanzaa to you and yours who celebrate. The week long celebration begins today and goes through Jan. 1. This a celebration of unity, faith and African roots. Folks asked these question all the time: "What is Kwanzaa? and should a Christian celebrate Kwanzaa?"

Yes Christians can celebrate Kwanzaa and with a clear conscious. Kwanzaa, is a celebration of African and African American history and culture. It's not meant to replace the Christmas holiday nor is it a religious holiday. 

Some Christians celebrate Christmas by singing songs and sharing gifts. Some Jewish people celebrate Hanukkah with the lighting of the menorah and the spinning of the dreidel. Some African Americans observe Kwanzaa to celebrate their unity, creativity, and faith.


Day 1: Umoja (oo-MOH-jah): Unity Success starts with Unity. Unity of family, community, nation and race.
