The members of SLPS gathered to celebrate and work magic of the last full moon of 2015 on Saturday, December 26, 2015. It was also the start of Kwanzaa, so the altar was decorated and adorned with traditional Kwaznaa items as well. The Kinara was lit, the black called, for the first night for the discussion about the first principal of Kwanzaa, unity. A discussion followed about the importance of unity in the community. After the ritual, a special chicken and ground nut stew and fufu were prepared to honor the start of the holiday and were offered to the Moon Goddess.
