Before anyone starts to jump on my case for getting my facts wrong..well wikipedia put it best; During the early years of Kwanzaa, Karenga said that it was meant to be an alternative to Christmas, that Jesus was psychotic, and that Christianity was a white religion that black people should shun.[1] However, as Kwanzaa gained mainstream adherents, Karenga altered his position so that practicing Christians would not be alienated, then stating in the 1997 Kwanzaa: A Celebration of Family, Community, and Culture, "Kwanzaa was not created to give people an alternative to their own religion or religious holiday."[2]

Also, for those not in the know, Wintereenmas is a creation of Tim Buckley for his excellent webcomic Ctrl-Alt-Del. It is a winter holiday celebrating video games, and in an instance of life imitating art, it has been embraced by many gaming communities who celebrate by hosting tournaments and LAN parties. Chloe, Matt and Steve are celebrating it this week, starting in this strip.
