I have yet to get active in celebrating Kwanzaa, although I dont celebrate Christmas as I did in past years(my kidds are grown)me and my wife still get each other a gift, this year I`m going to make ,draw,paint or build her main gift. I hope she can accept my choice of celebration LOL!!I like 2 of my brothers Imoteph & Diallo Sekou feel that Christmas has gone to commercial, and is very much over-rated(my own words) don`t get me wrong, I believe in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and all that goes with it in much respect, but after the passing of my mother(5 yrs.ago) and as I said before kidds grown-up it does`nt have as much steam for me anymore so I will start Kwanzza to celebrate from this year on.I think we should reconize it just as we do all the other holidays and like the ones I don`t consider holidays like valentine,sweetest,bosses dayetc.
