Default Forgotten Holiday!?!?!?!

Hey guys, I just recently noticed GANZ forgot about Kwanza! I myself do not celebrate it, but I am sure some WW users do! And it is certainly unfair that there are no Kwanza items in the W-shop. I think GANZ should really make a Kwanza celebration, it does not matter how they do it, but they should be fair to all those who don't celebrate X-mas or Hannukah. What do you think? Hope you like my idea!

They don't have anything for Muslim holidays, or Hindu holidays or any others either. It would be too hard to try to include everyone. I think because in North America, we are a Judeo-Christian society, so that may be why they only have those. If you want to get really technical about the holiday thing, Ganz is a Canadian company, and there is no special Canada day events, or anything for Canadian thanksgiving.

They don't put a lot of holiday items up! And the majority of people celebrate those holidays, so it is just easier for them to not put those up.

Seeing as it's such a large website, Ganz can't cover all the holidays. Christianity and Judaism are the biggest religions in North America, so they will just cover that.

OHHH, I CANNOT Believe we didn't even think of it until you mentioned it And it IS an officially recognized Holiday (non-religious) among African Americans celebrated from the 26th of December until the 1st of January. Similar to Jewish Hanukkah, in that they light a candle for each day that passes. There are only seven candles on their 'Kinara' as opposed to 8 on the Menorrah. Each one represents a Principle of Kwanzaa
Kwanzaa celebrates what its founder called "The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa", or Nguzo Saba (originally Nguzu Saba - "The Seven Principles of Blackness"), which Karenga said "is a Communitarian African philosophy" consisting of what Karenga called "the best of African thought and practice in constant exchange with the world." These seven principles comprise Kawaida, a Swahili term for tradtion and reason. Each of the seven days of Kwanzaa is dedicated to one of the following principles:
  • Umoja (Unity) To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation and race.
  • Kujichagulia (Self-Determination) To define ourselves, name ourselves, create for ourselves and speak for ourselves.
  • Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility) To build and maintain our community together and make our brothers' and sisters' problems our problems and to solve them together.
  • Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics) To build and maintain our own stores, shops and other businesses and to profit from them together.
  • Nia (Purpose) To make our collective vocation the building and developing of our community in order to restore our people to their traditional greatness.
  • Kuumba (Creativity) To do always as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.
  • Imani (Faith) To believe with all our heart in our people, our parents, our teachers, our leaders and the righteousness and victory of our struggle.
I hope that explains it a BIT to everyone here. I know I learned something, toady

Your right they should have atleast one Kinara. But I guess not to many people celebrate it in America in Canada so they decided to leave it out I guess.

I don't think GANZ can incorporate EVERY Religious holiday, seeing as there are a lot of religions.. Besides, Ganzw/Webkinz is a Norta American based site, and it "specializes" in Hanukkah, Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, Halloween, Valentine's Day..
