Today we’d like to wish everyone a Happy Boxing Day and first day of Kwanzaa!
Boxing day is celebrated much like a Thanksgiving feast, with friends and family visiting to share in good food, spectator sports and fine spirits. Most of England and Canada treat Boxing Day like America does Black Friday, as if combining both Thanksgiving and the day after into one day.
Kwanzaa celebrates African culture in America and focuses on family and community. Originating in Africa as a harvest celebration, Kwanzaa comes from the phrase matunda ya kwanza, which means “first fruits” in Swahili. From now until January 1, those celebrating Kwanzaa will take time to rejoice in rich culture, bountiful feasts and good company.
We hope everyone has fun in celebrating their holidays this season and look forward to seeing you all back in the New Year!
