    I never would have known this: Chrismukkah is that time between Christmas Eve or the first day of Hanukkah (whichever comes first) and Christmas Day or the last day of Hanukkah (whichever occurs last).
    Where did I learn this? Check out www.chrismukkah.com for more info!

    I was considering becoming a druid. Started looking into the whole thing. Eventually I decided against it when people kept saying...

    "Funny, you don't look Druish..." !rolling

    Kwanzaa, like "Secretary's Day", is yet another one of those "made up"
    holidays started by the predominately black Kiwanis Club of Decatur, IL.
    Even the venerable "Christmas" itself, didn't exist until 2000 years ago.

    Eventually, every person, group and crackpot belief system will have their
    own holiday. In fact, more days may have to be added to the calendar in
    order to accomodate them all.

    :p

    started by the predominately black Kiwanis Club of Decatur, IL.

    Actually it was started by Maulana Karenga in 1966 in California. Not certain to what you are refering, but various african american organizations certainly have played a part in promoting the holiday.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwanzaa

    Thus far its estimated that only 1.6% of Americans celebrate it. Thats hardly a major holiday as yet, but the numbers have surpassed other recent religions such as modern Wicca (started in the 1930's).

    Wow...it's been around that long?
    Seems to me like I just started hearing about it the past few years!!
    Growing up in the innercity of Milwaukee one would think I would have, at least, heard the name.
    Guess the black folk in my area prefered plain ol' Christmas!

    Kwanzaa is not really a religious holiday in that it is not affialited with any particular religion. It began more or less as a celebration of African American culture and certain values. Sadly it too has become commercialized.
