Kwanzaa Parties Are All The Rage

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Ain’t no party like a Kwanzaa (Dec. 26-Jan. 1) party – as long as there’s plenty of booze.

Everyone throws a Christmas party, but a Kwanzaa party can be just as wild and fun, according to party planner Marley Majcher of ThePartyGoddess.com.

Though the holiday, created in 1966, is all about quiet reflection on the past, reading poetry, and honoring African culture, it can still be a raging good time.

She says, “All you need is booze and music to spice up a party. If people walk into a party with music and get handed a martini, it’ll get them in a party mode.”

The party planning diva assures that you don’t have to be Black to host or enjoy a Kwanzaa party, but it’s best to stick to the tradition of the holiday to keep it accurate.

That includes lots of good old soul food, like fried okra, barbecue chicken, and jambalaya.

Majcher adds, “Kwanzaa is another excuse to get people together. You don’t have to have nude dancers, but it can be a wild party.”
