Hanukkah and Kwanzaa: Recommended Reading

In December, people all over the world celebrate Hanukkah and Kwanzaa with family and friends. Kwanzaa is an annual African American and pan-African holiday that takes place from December 26 until January 1. Hanukkah is observed for eight nights and days every year, normally occurring in December, although the exact dates change every year. This is because Hanukkah is always on the 25th day of Kislev in the Hebrew calendar. Both holidays focus on bringing light, metaphorically and literally into the world and honoring one's connection to their past heritage. Looking for some festive dishes to make?
