NORDSTROMS HAS A KWANZAA HOLIDAY GIFT CARD!
« on: December 01, 2005, 04:50:00 PM »
I was online purchasing a gift certificate for my lawyer who is actually jewish, when I came across the Kwanzaa gift card. Does anybody here besides me think that's just a wee bit funny? I'd love to hear some thoughts from you all. I didn't even think it was a real holiday???

That is some funny shit, it's not even a religous holiday. It's just like when you had some people out in Oakland California trying to make ebonics an official language!

Okay, thats cool if you want to have a day (or week, whatever), dedicated to celebrating your heritage.  But if you are serious about it, and would like everyone to recognize and even participate in your holiday, WHY would you make that holiday in December???  There's just too much other stuff going on.

The Irish have their holiday in March.

I dunno, the Romans moved Christ's birthday to December so that it would coincide with their holiday of debauchery, the Saturnalia, so it's not like it hasn't been done before.


Dude, we should so totally bring back Saturnalia.

I'm white and I've celebrated Kwanzaa for about 10 years.  I smoke crack, play tunk (card game the brothers in jail like to play), drink Cisco, wear gold chains, and listen to hip-hop.  You think I'm kidding?  Kwanzaa's one of my favorite holidays, I really enjoy that crack......

Do you think African-Americans made this holiday in December just out of spite?  If not, they should have made in some other time during the year, so that more people might get involved and learn about it and even celebrate.

Are you freaking kidding me? Do you even know anything about Kwanzaa and it's pillars of virtues and gratitude that have little to do with the gross materialism that is now Christmas?

This is not a holiday founded from spite. It is a rejection of materialism and a celebration of the true gifts of life. (Although that will probably change if Nordstrom has the card.)

I have friends whose families celebrate Kwanzaa, and it has real meaning.

And like the other poster attested, our other Christian holidays did not really occur when Jesus was born or died.  They were pagan rituals that were remade into Christian ones to pave the way for conversion.

But who the fuck cares? Santa Claus is coming to town, whether you are naughty or nice.

I'm not saying that Kwanza doesn't have real meaning- but I think that they should celebrate it some other time during the year.  

Most African-Americans I know do not celebrate it, b/c they celebrate xmas, or whatever.  More people would celebrate if they just held it in a different month.

I agree with you. I'm not sure why they are trying to compete with Christmas? I know this holiday was started 40 years ago. So, basically 1965 when we were having a lot of racial issues. Who knows, maybe I'd even take the time to celebrate it, if it was in a different month?
