My family has been celebrating Kwanzaa for a little over 15 years now: Homemade gifts. Libations to my ancestors. Candle lighting! and good ole healthy soul food. When I talk about Kwanzaa, people often ask many questions or have a lot of preconceived ideas about the celebration.So what exactly is Kwanzaa?
This year I decided that I would celebrate my Thanksgiving holiday by being green!I chose not to fly to Grandma's house and to do away with the traditional turkey. My family and I opted for a vegetarian dinner (except for the one steak that my hubby demanded). We bought vegetables that were for the most part locally and/or organically grown. We opted not to use any disposable plates, cups, utensils, etc.
