If you are thinking about celebrating both holidays, I am so proud of you for breaking the generational curse. This is the only holiday that celebrates African Americans for 7 days. However, by celebrating both holidays you will be able to take advantage of:

-the after Christmas sales and spread your spending over 8 days instead of 1.

-instill lifelong virtues that create feelings of positive self esteem, generate a better sense of community, and creates time for everyone to learn more about your family history.

-celebrating the home and elders with gifts and intentional time spent.

-create next year goals for 2023 and agree to keep these goals through out the year.

-on the last day (New Year’s Eve) the family gathers to bring pot luck food & gifts to share ands celebrate the new years with family

Are you ready now? I hope so?
