What was your favorite religious holiday as a kid?
we weren't a very religious family, but Christmas was much more about family, exchanging gifts...and family family family.
that's all you can count on in life.
keep them close.
Any kid who wasn't pumped for xmas over any other holiday probably had shit parents.
Everything below Hanukkah isn't a real holiday.
Kwanzaa, where we celebrate the spirit of #ogun and curse the wh*te supremacists
Hey, now. Keep it in the War Room...
Christmas, but also had some nice Easters, Halloweens, etc.
Also, FWIW, my mother's side of the family is black, and while we celebrated Kwanzaa once or twice in the 90s, it's not a religious holiday. I also think it's waning in popularity.
Kwanzaa isn't a religious holiday
There are some "faith" based elements to it, but I wanted to include it to see how many people may have actually celebrated it growing up (give or take some trolling).
It would make sense that it is waning because it is a holiday originally conceived of in California that was sometimes marketed (or perceived) as something that originated in Africa (even though it did not).
I guess it depends on how you define "religion."
I'm wondering if the founder of the holiday, Maulana Karenga, was ever able to make major money off of it, or if the money from its popularity and commercialization just went to corporations. I can't find anything from any reputable net worth/financial sites, but he is the chair of the African Studies Department at California State University, Long Beach, so I'm sure he's doing alright at any rate.
PS - He makes $163k+ apparently.
Kwanzaa is rooted in some Marxist and anti-white ideals. This is not hidden.
Anybody who doesn't pick xmas, probably doesn't celebrate it.
Probably mostly corporations.
"africanholocaust.net" is that a solid source?
Look man, just leave it alone. His derangement runs deep as fuck. Plus he might change the thread title on you if you push it too much.
The creator of Kwanzaa, Maulana Karenga, echoed those types of sentiments. He was part of the black power movement in the 60's and has written books about it.
Falsedank ventured out of the War Room to deny obviously true things here too. How did we get so lucky?
You'll put the Christ back into Christmas or else!
