Kwanzaa is an African American holiday celebrated from December 26th to January 1st. The name comes from a Swahili phrase "first fruits of the harvest." There are seven principles of Kwanzaa (Nguzo Saba) with one celebrated each day; Unity, Self-determination, Work/Responsibility, Cooperative economics, Sense of purpose, Creativity and Faith.
The colors of Kwanzaa are red, black and green and can be seen in African art and the fabrics are worn and used in decorations. Traditional African food made with seeds, peanuts, sweet potatoes, collard greens and spices are enjoyed during this celebration.
