Kwanzaa

Kwanzaa is a seven-day celebration honoring African heritage in African American culture and takes place from December 26th to January 1st.  All Seven Principles of Kwanzaa are:

  • unity (umoja)
  • self-determination (kujichagulia)
  • collective work (ujima)
  • cooperative economics (ujamaa)
  • purpose (nia)
  • creativity (kuumba)
  • faith (imani)

In fact, the name Kwanzaa comes from the Swahili phrase “matunda ya kwanza,” meaning “first fruits of the harvest.”

Sending happy Kwanzaa wishes to someone who celebrates is a nice way to connect and show respect for their heritage! Make a Kwanzaa card to share with your friends and family. You can draw a nice picture or share a message to celebrate.

  • Wishing you warmth and togetherness this Kwanzaa.
  • Hope your Kwanzaa is filled with joy and prosperity.
  • Celebrating love, community, and family.
  • Light, happiness, and peace to you in the coming year.
  • Kwanzaa blessings to you and yours.
  • May peace, love, and unity bring a happy Kwanzaa to you.
  • Celebrating the richness of you.
  • Let the light of Kwanzaa bring happiness to your home.
