Kwanza is Christmas in Africa and a real thing and both are celebrated near the winter equinox which is December 21 or 22, depending on your point of reference.

I am never sure about anything but give a close approximation of range and bearing. When TS is cranking in coordinates you better duck. If I confused equinox with solstice then please forgive a wayward child.

I avoid looking in a mirror unless cutting my hair when I use two mirrors. I scissor cut my hair because I lack the skill to do a razor cut. Oops is that my ear on the floor? lol

Kwanzaa is like Christmas, it's a made up thing to glom on to what people were already doing.
