Will.I.Am Teaches Us About The Second Day Of Kwanzaa Plus Muppets!

Today is the second day of Kwanzaa and the principle we’re reflecting on is called Kujichagulia (koo-gee-cha-goo-LEE-ah) which has to be the best holiday word ever! It means self determination and the Beautiful Girl and I will celebrate by rocking out to this Will I Am song:

Ah Muppets, what *can’t* you teach us? I actually do listen to non-Muppet based music. In fact there are hardly any puppets in my CD/MP3 collection at all! I have no idea why, if left to my own devices, I will inevitably post a Muppet video here. Ah well, it doesn’t really matter why I suppose, Muppets are cool and that is that. But tomorrow I vow there shall be NO puppet videos on this blog! (It’ll be a cartoon instead.)

Happy Kwanzaa!

Happy Kwanzaa everyone! The week long celebration runs from December 26 to January 1 and each day symbolizes one of the principles of Kwanzaa. Today is Umoja which means unity. I chose a tune from the 1964 Larry Young album “Unity” mainly because it is called “Unity.” Also, “Softly As In A Morning Sunrise” has never swung so hard!

I will be celebrating this day of Umoja by shipping my daughter off to the sitter and working a long evening shift (boo). But here’s hoping everyone else gets to spend some time with the people they love.
