Does anyone celebrate Kwanzaa?

I'm white, have several African-American friends, and no one I know of celebrates Kwanzaa. My son with autism is obsessed with winter holidays and keeps talking about Kwanzaa, wants to get a kinara, etc. But it seems like Kwanzaa isn't that popular of a holiday. Anyone you know of that celebrates Kwanzaa?

  • I was wondering the same bloody thing the other day. I'm a woman of color and I do not celebrate it and I also do not personally know of any others who celebrate it either.
