February 15, 2017 (SSB) — All International Days we used to celebrate were invented. The Yoga’s Day, Mothers’ Day, Father’s Day, Teachers’ Day, Valentine’s Day, Women’s Day, Japan’s Annual Penis Festival Day, and many other International Days were all invented.

What is Kaman?

The word Kaman in Dinka means Visitor. Therefore, Kaman’s Day or Visitor’s Day is the day of recognizing the importance of Kaman or visitor(s) in our society. It’s a day of inviting visitor (s) whether a child, neighbour, in-law, boyfriend, girlfriend, and friend for special dinner or party. Kamaan or Visitors are part of our lives.

They give us joy when we’re sad, they help use when we’re in trouble, and they provide information we need. Our ancestors had precious love for Kamaan (visitors). Kaman (visitor) would get the best services such as accommodation, delicious food (a bull or goat can be slaughtered), clean water and had to be entertained before s/he goes to the bed.

Who is Kaman?

A Kaman can be a neighbour, child, elderly person, father-in-law, mother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, boyfriend, girlfriend, friend, classmate, countryman, Asian, India, African, or white.

Why is Kaman’s Day important?

  • Kaman’s Day is a get-together party of friends, in-laws, neighbours, boyfriends, and girlfriends. On this day, you can introduce your Kaman or Kamaan to your friends and family members.
  • You can share your life experiences, new skills, and useful ideas with
  • Kaman’s Day can also strengthen your relationship with your friends, in-laws, girlfriend, boyfriend, children, and elderly people.
  • It’s a day of reflecting the importance and the roles of Kaman in the past. Kaman’s Day is colourful when some of your Kamaan (visitors) are elderly people. Elderly people are source of wisdom and once you invited them on this day, they will give you advice that can help you in daily life.
