3. The holiday encourages you to appreciate the universe
You don’t have to necessarily believe in a higher power to celebrate Kwanzaa. It is, however, beneficial to look around and say, “Hey, nature is a beautiful thing.”
4. Kwanzaa is a time to appreciate the past and learn lessons for the future
There’s a saying that alludes to history repeating itself. Thankfully, Kwanzaa is an occasion that encourages you to appreciate the past and all of its lessons to secure a better future. Imagine what the state of the world would be if we knew our history and determined to refrain from making the same mistakes. Such is the power of the season.
