Thank You Brother James ... :toast1:

I made this its own thread ... so it could have its own notation in the calendar.

It seems that it is celebrating the Yoruba New Year ... but it's held on June 8, 2014 this year ... but it changes every year ... with the date centering on the 2nd Sunday in the month of June ... whichever day that falls on.

Again ... it's celebrating the Yoruba New Year ... but is it actually on the Yoruba New Year?

I'm adding it to the calendar now.

Love You!

:heart:

What is this man doing in this picture I wonder?
he is a yoruba priest. he is throwing the shells to make a reading.
odunde is a celebration of the goddess oshun. she is the deity of the rivers.
yoruba is a religion of west africa. many of us come from that area. yoruba is our natural way.

I'll be honest. I like black culture forums, so I've signed up for this one, BX, and Lipstick Alley. I won't post too often, only on things that I'm really interested in. Nice to meet you. :)
