Joyous Kwanzaa

From Wikipedia:

"Kwanzaa is a week-long holiday celebrated throughout the world, honouring African heritage, marked by participants lighting a kinara (candle holder).
It is observed from December 26 to January 1 each year.

It was created by Ron Karenga and was first celebrated from December 26, 1966, to January 1, 1967."

Joyous Kwanzaa to all who celebrate this holiday.

The Kwanzaa holiday is almost as old as I am, but I'll bet it doesn't have crow's feet.

Very enlightening, as usual I've learned something here - thank you and Happy Kwanzaa.
