The Honor! The Honor!: Kwanzaa and My Birthday Both Begin Today!

It is, of course, a time of warmth and nostalgia for all of us, filled with holiday traditions and memories. Hearing Bing Crosby sing Nguzo Saba...watching "How the Grinch Stole Odu Ifa"...or settling in with a cup of hot cocoa to watch Jimmy Stewart in the classic "It's a Wonderful Walimwengu." --Hope n' Change Haapy Holidaays

Kwanzaa! Such a notable and endlessly heartwarming holiday! So steeped in teetering joy and ululating! Who can possibly be against this throbbing and ceaselessly pullulating tradition? Beyond -- far, far beyond -- a Festivus for the rest of us, Kwanzaa is the veritable Cadillac of holidays.One hears Kwanzaa sounds, and what can one say but... "Salieri."

It begins on my birthday as well. I think, in the spirit of Kwanzaa, I shall extend it for seven days! After all, if the Christ gets one day, why shouldn't I and the teetering and cavorting Kwanzaaites get seven? What can one say about Kwanzaa except....

It. Just. Doesn't. Get. Any. Better.

Does it?

I'm all for your birthday; continued birthdays for that matter. Kwanzaa: that's another story.

Where does this magic knowledge come from?

Not for nutting, but what the hell is a Kwanzaa?

This is a fine day to be born as it's also my daughter's birthday. This may be why we always forget to light our Kwanzaa candles.

I want to celebrate Kwaaaanzaaa but it's so complicated--does "cooperative economics" day come before or after "perpetual grievance" day?

Seven days ... Hmmm, excellent plan! It should come with a song and maybe a dance I think. I love birthdays and party's and birthday parties. A celebratory week seems barely enough. A warm up to the New Year ... Perfect. I'm surprised you didn't institute it year ago!
