FYI arch, i found the kara'i fascinating and would love to discuss that with you at some point via u2u.
I should point out that it is their holy days, and calander the church was founded on(With NT added of course), not their ethnic, or cultural
characteristics. It was not taken from their religion, there was just a similar strict interpretation of the OT. No Christmass, no Easter, no good
friday. Passover, pentacost, tabernacles....
Because of that many did not understand how I could be a christian while I was growing up.
The tzitzit and other such ethnic traits were not part of it. There was two Karaite families that also attended, but they did not wear tzitzit, or
folow anything else from the Karaite culture.
