Umoja Karamu – A sweet Kwanzaa warmup

Folks, Umoja Karamu can be a sweet Kwanzaa warmup. It falls on the 4th Sunday of November. Some American folks ignore Thanksgiving and celebrate this instead. Do you? If so do tell. I started to read about it a few years back. Now I’m considering incorporating it into my calendar. We shall see. Food, music, fellowship. Ah ha!

A clip explaining the celebration:
