Christmahanukkwanzaa is the ultimate celebration of unity across all cultures.

“Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa,”
is a way to say, “I love and respect myself, my culture, my faith and my traditions…I also totally respect every one else, and their culture, faith and traditions.”  

In an atmosphere of diversity, “Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa” is a way for us all to reach out across all supposed lines, and embrace each other, wish each other and our families well, and, mostly, melt the ice that for whatever reason persists between different groups of people. Christmahanukkwanzaa is a bridge between all groups.

Christmahanukkwanzaa celebrates our common membership in the family of humankind, while acknowledging the coolness, the uniqueness of where we have all come from.

“Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa,” says, “I want to know you. I am your friend, and I hope you want to be my friend as well.

“Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa, “ says "I value you as a fellow human being.” 

Christmahanukkwanzaa is a revolution of unity. While our politicians and clergy duke it out over power, money, and their various selfish agendas, we as a human family can simply work around them, seize the real power, and come together on our own terms. We can maybe even end war and starvation on a global scale. After all, who is willing to fight her or his friends? Who can stand by and allow the suffering of a friend? Christmahanukkwanzaa says that we are all friends.
HOW DO YOU CELEBRATE CHRISTMAHANUKKWANZAA?
You simply celebrate CHK as its own holiday, and/or you celebrate whatever you celebrated before, only you invite other people from outside your culture or religion to celebrate with you. You wish them a happy Christmahanukkwanzaa. You accept invitations to celebrate holidays you don’t know so much about. You reach out to your fellow human being in love and acceptance. You party, hug a lot of people, and spread a lot of love and good will. And, why not give some one a long-overdue, sloppy kiss.
TOLERANCE?
We who embrace the spirit of Christmahanukkwanzaa reject the idea of tolerance. By definition, tolerance says, exactly, “I tolerate you….I put up with you, despite the fact that I don’t particularly like or respect you...despite the assumption that I am right, and you are wrong.” Christmahanukkwanzaa blows tolerance away, and says, “I embrace you…I welcome you…I celebrate you….I LOVE YOU, FELLOW HUMAN BEING!”

DOES CHRISTMAHANUKKWANZAA CONTRADICT YOUR FAITH?
Actually, most faiths’ prophets (all blessings be upon them) preached tolerance—probably for lack of a better word. It has been people who have taken hold of our holy books and figured out how to interpret those to suit our own prejudices and bigotry. We believe that the idea of Christmahanukkwanzaa will strengthen your faith, and your quality participation in your faith by observing what the prophets (all blessings be upon them) intended. For once we will be living in the spirit of unity, which celebrates and honors God far better than self segregation.

While each separate holiday or celebration has its merits and cultural beauty, the effect of having three completely separate occasions sometimes separates people culturally. Instead of trying to include people from other cultures, races or religions in our celebrations, we instead tend to self-segregate. Segregation breeds fear—fear breeds hate…hate breeds war. By the way, the Koran expresses deep reverence for Jesus Christ. In the Bible, Jesus clearly says, “Love thy neighbor as thyself,” and, of course, Jesus was a good Jew. Sounds like a formula for unity to us! By the way, all the above-mentioned faiths, while being Abrahamic faiths, have managed to perpetuate war against each other for a couple thousand years now. Maybe it’s time we all get together and see what we can do about pulling this world together.
ATHEISTS AND AGNOSTICS?
First of all, we love and respect you as equal and beautiful human beings. Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa! Whether or not you believe in God, what makes more sense than unity, global peace, universal kindness, sharing sisterhood/brotherhood, and mutual celebration? What, globally, could possibly make more sense?

HATERS
Well, if you’re a hater, you have most likely figured out how to incorporate your hatred and anger into whatever belief system you have chosen. So, you are likely to dislike the very idea of Christmahanukkwanzaa, because it’s all about mutual love and respect for all people. However, if you’ve gotten to the point where you realize that the hate just is not working for you—and, come on…you know it aint workin’ for ya—then why don’t you give peace, love and happiness a shot. Fake it ‘til you make it. Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa.  By the way, we’ve devised a test: walk through the streets, the stores, your place of work…wherever…smiling and wishing every one you come across peace, health and love to them and their families. Or just shout out, “Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa!” Do this for one day, and we guarantee you’ll be a better, happier person at the end of that day. Truly hard cases may require two full days of this therapy. Of course, to maintain this state of bliss, you’ll just have to repeat the process daily. If you need more aggressive therapy, you might try feeding the poor or visiting the sick or elderly. How about making an effort to make peace in a relationship that has gone bad? How about adopting a child from somewhere less fortunate?

The One
We are all a part of the One. As John Lennon brilliantly wrote: “I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together.”  Some other great writer once said, “Do unto others as you would have done unto yourself.” Put simply, any kindness I do unto you, I do unto myself. Any harm you do to me, you do to yourself. If we are kind to one person, we are kind to all people. If we are cruel to but one, we are cruel to ourselves, as well as the rest of the One. As long as one being suffers, we all are diminished. Especially since we really have plenty to completely wipe out global suffering. We literally have all the materials, the resources, and the personal attributes to end war, oppression, disease and starvation. Any of it that exists is basically because we stand by and allow it to happen. While it is a simple thing, the idea of Christmahanukkwanzaa brings us closer to the one. It unites us. Know any separatists? Wish them a Happy Christmahanukkwanzaa. Wanna be a revolutionary? Start speaking out about unity, and celebrating diversity. Take a happy stand for the oneness of humanity (hey, let’s throw animals in the mix too.) Don’t push too hard or proselytize. Some folks aren’t quite ready, and need the message to sink in more slowly. Still, it can not hurt to let a little light in. Either way, a little humor goes a long way. Give people a laugh about it, and it’ll catch on.

Let people of good heart take up the torch,
and celebrate Christmahanukkwanzaa.
