Happy Kwanzaa

 Kinara (The Candle Holder)
 This is symbolic of our roots, our parent people -- continental Africans.
irie Corner Caterers BlogKwanzaa is a African Holiday which has seven principles, seven candles and seven special days. 
 
Kwanzaa was created to introduce and reinforce seven basic values of African culture which contribute to building and reinforcing family, community and culture among African American people as well as Africans throughout the world African community.
 
The name Kwanzaa derives from the Swahili phrase matunda ya kwanza, meaning first fruits of the harvest.
 
The 1st Principle is: Umoja (Unity): To strive for and to maintain unity in the family, community, nation, and race.
 
What is your Umoja?
 
My Umoja is: As the "event planner", I organize and gather my family to spend quality time for birthdays, holidays and special occasions.

My Umoja is to help others understand the importance of coming together while we all are still healthy and alive and not to wait until sad events and funerals to gather enjoy each other daily
