Happy Kwanzaa!!

Today is the 1st day of Kwanzaa. The principle of the day is Umoja, which means unity. Let's celebrate family, community, romantic connection, marriage, friendship, teamwork and collaboration! -- Separation is for the weak unity is for the strong!

Re: Happy Kwanzaa!!

Today is the 2nd day of Kwanzaa. The principle of the day is Kujichagulia which means Self-determination. Let's celebrate knowing oneself and one’s culture, because it gives us a stronger will to make yourself and your community proud.

Your success added with the success of other people in your community with self determination, is what gives a group of people power + pride.

It all starts with a personal will, desire and faith to succeed. -- Remember all things are possible for those who believe.”

That woman destroys everything she touches. Did she concoct a "special" Umojatini to go with it?



The "acorns" (actually Corn Nuts®) are a special touch.

Day 2: Kujichagulia (Self-Determination): To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves, and speak for ourselves.

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

I love how the video cuts off right before one would attempt to eat that monstrosity. I am SCREAMING because I thought the "candles" were those sugary ice pops





Oh and happy Kwanzaa to everyone celebrating

Re: Happy Kwanzaa!!

I love Aunt Sandy! I just spent a good half hour rewatching some of my favorite videos.







Happy Kwanzaa though! Stay away from the Kwanzaa cake...

"​The eye-searing 'Kwanzaa Cake' clip on YouTube, of Sandra Lee doing things with store-bought angel food cake, canned frosting, and corn nuts, instead of being simply the unintentionally hilarious viral video it should be, makes me mad for all humanity. I. Just. Can’t. Help. It."​ — Anthony Bourdain, Medium Raw

My friends and I have a Kwanzaa celebration every year on New Years Day. Lots of food, mimosa's that I make and a grand time.

Before you speak to me about your religion, first show it to me in how you treat other people; before you tell me how much you love your God, show me in how much you love all His children; before you preach to me of your passion for your faith, teach me about it through your compassion for your neighbors. In the end, I'm not as interested in what you have to tell or sell as in how you choose to live and give.
