Kwanzaa
 
Kwanzaa is an African American cultural celebration with focus on the traditional African values of family and community responsibility. It is also known as Swahili kwanza, which means "beginnings" or "first fruits of the harvest" in the African language. Dr. Maulena Karenga, and his family and friends first celebrated Kwanzaa on December 26th, 1966, in Los Angeles. He based the holiday on traditional African celebrations of the first fruits of the harvest, while highlighting African history, mythology, creativity, social structure, political organization and economics. The festival is celebrated with feasts and songs in the home for seven days and nights.
 
 
The African colours, are prominently displayed. Black, red and green streamers, balloons, cloth, flowers, and African printings are hung tastefully around the room. The green colour represent for the future and black for the struggle. Parent’s role is vital in this celebration, which stresses family unity and cultural self-determination, responsibility. Kwanzaa is based on the Nguzo Saba (seven guiding principles), one for each day of the observance, and is celebrated from December 26th to January 1st by lighting 7 candles.

The seven core principles of Kwanzaa are Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity), and Imani (faith).

The holiday is celebrated by more than 20 million African-Americans in the United States and millions more of African descent throughout the globe.
