December is a magical month of parties, sparkle and lots of celebrations. Celebrations are held around the World, including Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Ōmisoka.
For women who celebrate Hanukkah, it’s a time to host family parties that include gifts, candlelight and delicious food. For those who celebrate Kwanzaa, families and communities meet to light candles, enjoy food and song, exchange gifts, tell stories, read, dance, and play the drums.
