Not wanting anyone to be left out, a Wisconsin Republican is now waging war on Kwanzaa.

Full Disclosure:

I used to look down on Kwanzaa as a “made-up” holiday until I realized that

  • it is benign and positive, and
  • all holidays are made up, that is, created by society.

They may be created to commemorate (Christmas, Fourth of July), honor (President’s Day, Martin Luther King Day), or promote* (Arbor Day, Flag Day) something, but they are societal creations.

Disparaging Kwanzaa says nothing about Kwanzaa, but much about the disparager.


*Too often, sales of greeting cards, but that’s another topic.
