Happy Holidays, Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah and Habari Gani, for Kwanzaa celebrants. So many special religious and cultural holidays and festivals are celebrated during this season. Happy Holidays is bland, but it does allow us to celebrate the holiday or festival of our choice at this event. This is a season of reflection and joy, of promise and good will. Let us celebrate that in our own way but also be inclusive.
