During the month of December most of the focus is on Christmas, however there are several other celebrations that also take place during the month, including Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Winter Solstice, the Human Light Celebration and Bhodi Day. My guests were Jim Downard of the Inland Northwest Free Thought Society and the Spokane Secular Society who joined me to talk about the Winter Solstice Celebration in Spokane on 12/21 and Marci Halili-Akoma, a Southern California Native who has been celebrating Kwanzaa for the past 30 years, joined me to to talk about the meaning of Kwanzaa. This program originally aired on 12/19/10.
