The week-long celebration of Kwanzaa begins today! Send free Kwanzaa eCards to
friend and family in honor of the occasion. This holiday was created by
Dr. Maulana Karenga in 1966 to honor African American heritage. It
reflects upon and celebrates seven principles: unity,
self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative
economics, purpose, creativity, and faith.
On each day of the
celebration, a candle is lit on the Kinara. Today, on the first day of
Kwanzaa, a black candle is lit to symbolize the people. To the left of
the black candle are three red candles, representing the people's
struggles. To the right of the black candle are three green candles,
symbolizing the people's hope for the future. The candles are lit from
left to right, one candle for each day of the celebration.
Celebrate African American culture, and enjoy the festive meals and gift-giving! We wish you a Joyous Kwanzaa!

Happy Belated Kwanzaa!!!
