Ron Karenga created Kwanzaa in California in 1966, during his leadership of the black nationalist United Slaves Organization (also known as the "US Organization"), in order to give African Americans an alternative holiday to Christmas. He later stated, "...it was chosen to give a Black alternative to the existing holiday and give Blacks an opportunity to celebrate themselves and history, rather than simply imitate the practice of the dominant society."
Why shouldn't a black Christian celebrate Christmas? Seems like a holiday created from hatred to me.
Because "The Man" celebrates it, duh!

I saw a aluminium pole on the side of the road as I drove to buy my christmas tree. If my gf wasn't in the car with me, things would have turned out a little different.

ugh... christmas... the time when i have to think of a present for seven people

You're lucky. I have to get two parents, a grandparent, two brothers, two pseudo-sisters-in-law, and two pseudo-parents-in-law each a gift. Not to mention the multitude of gifts I'm obligated to buy for my fiance.

Ha!

I've got 3 sisters, 2 brother, 2 parents, 1 pseudo-mother-in-law and her boyfriend, one pseudo-father-in-law, one pseudo-step-mother-in-law and 5 pseudo-brother-in-laws, not to mention the multitude of gifts I am obligated to buy for my fiancee. I also have my wedding coming up on January 6th!

Not that I really mind that much, I love getting people gifts (this year I am giving baskets with homemade goodies including cookies, toffees, breads, and even bottles of my homemade mead).

The next month or so is by far the crappiest time of the year. I can't wait until it's over.

Dude, gf or no, you should have!

BTW: Aluminum sucks ass. It alloys real well into some great material, but aluminum itself sucks more ass then a milking machine on a bull.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

It's the 1st so we're putting up our tree today. I realised that this is the closest I'll get to getting in the christams spirit as today doesn't cost me any money.

I read on the wikipedia that putting the christmas tree up on the 1st is an New Zealand/Australia custom. I wasn't aware it was localised. It will usually stay up until the 12 night after christmas.

Because of this, many people prefer artificial trees, because it's summer, and the tree will be up for over a month.

Time to change the avatar!

As I said last year on this day, we put the christmas tree up, and, yeah, this is the nicest christmas gets before all the crap that goes with it gets piled on top.

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE 2008!

no way, there's only 3 weeks to go, and I'm going on holiday to the beach for a week and a half from boxing day. I can't wait. I haven't gone away over christmas for years.

holy cow... whenever seasonal threads like this come around, I feel amazement for a second when I see playfool has come back to join us....

nope.

Hey... last time I did hats was when I still used crystal penguin.... this guy looks a lot harder to fit than that.

Anyone know of an svg (or just very large) hat I could use?

wanna update the website too...
