What gifts 🎁 are you giving for Kwanzaa


Recommended Posts

I don't celebrate Kwanzaa but I think a few gift ideas:

 

Water

Seeds (vegetable)

Soil

Shovel

Pick

Ax

Saw

Gun

Knife 

Hammer

Screwdriver  

Wood

Nails and screws

 

At some point in time these items might become useful.😁😎

@ProfD Don't forget bullets.  Do you there is enough arable land in places like NYC for individuals to cultivate their own farms?

 

What do you think people, who live in cities, large and small, should do in preparation for the eventuality you apparently envision?

 

Also when you use a smiley face does that mean we should not take what you have written seriously?

@Troy, folks living in cities need to figure out whatever it would take in order to survive and thrive within their environment. 

 

There is seriousness in what I write. Some of it is figurative. I have to add a pinch of humor as well.

 

The point of my post in this thread is that a gift should be something of use. 😎

Fortunately, I don't celebrate it.

That’s truly unfortunate. It demonstrates a lack of desire for cultural cohesion.

I'd give the Black folks I live a bottle of Omega 3 Pills (if they don't already have some) ,

For kwanzaa in my home, we tend to give each other gifts that are modest, not always in preparation for the apocalypse or of 100% commercialism. We like books. We like eating meals together. Two of the days we give for meals cooked in the house. It isn't something uncommon, the kitchen is used throughout the year. 

 

So the simple answer to your question 

Quote

Which gifts did you give or receive last year?

is the gifts as in kwanzaa past. 

 

To your next question

Quote

 What gifts do you want to give this year?

The same or similar as in kwanaa past.

 

Your following question is a challenge.

I want to get an idea of what are the top 10 Kwanzaa gifts ?

The problem is, Kwanzaa is not a communal celebration, it is a home celebration. Many black people celebrate kwanzaa in their home, not in the black community. 

Harlem in NYC has HArlem Wekk, African American Day Parade, Black History Month celebrations at the Schomburg, Kwanzaa time gets symbols or celebrations out but their isn't a festival. That cultural definer. I argue that kwanzaa though meant to be a communal binder has become a symbol of the Black community in the modern  USA. in that it is an individual celebration. A celebration in the home. It doesn't have that standard. I know some people who wear expensive kente cloth outfits for each day and have readings. I know some people who simply have a kanar, and that's it. It is an open celebration. 

 

I end with, if I had money , I would make a Kwanzaa communal celebration. Someone posted about st patricks day. but people forget st patricks day was originally a religious observance day for the highly catholic irish community. That then became commercialized and very statian and is now areligious as a celebration. KWanzaa didn't come from the Black church in the USA . The Black Church in the USA to my knowledge, any one help me know other, doesn't have any unique days. I think the Black church in the usa could had did better for juneteenth or at least the 13th amendment. It is funny how white churches tend to make celebrations up but black churches talk about orthodoxy.  But, Kwanzaa can use with someone with money to make it a grand celebration in some city somewhere.

@richardmurray Good point.

Another good point. The Black church should have done better. That could be the one event that could foster a better unity on a major event that affects mostly all of the ADOS, FBA, etc. 

They continually collect in the offering plate to fund what!?
