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.
