    Kwanzaa is a FAKE holiday!

    1. All holidays are ‘fake’ holidays. It’s not like some holidays are naturally-occurring . They’re all something that someone made up and said “Let’s make this day a holiday for X reason.” Kwanzaa is no less or more fake than Mother’s Day or Arbor Day or Christmas.

      They’re all made up..people make up holidays, it’s how it works. It’s not like we discovered arbor day.

    why do people feel the need to have everyone believe and think exactly the same ? If Kwanzaa has a meaning for somebody, and it makes them happy, go for it. All holidays are made up, get over yourselves.
