Joyful Kwanzaa!

Happy and Joyful Kwanzaa to All My Friends, Readers and Subscribers of African descent!

Roaming Urban Gypsy

Kwanzaa is derived from the Swahili phrase “matunda ya kwanzaa,” which means “first fruits of the harvest.”

It is a celebration of family, community and culture of those of African descent worldwide, celebrated from December 26 through January 1 of each year.

I wish everyone of African descent who celebrates the Kwanzaa holiday nothing but happiness, joy and inspiration on this special holiday.

Kwanzaa has seven core principles, or Nguzo Saba:
  • Umoja:Unity. To strive for and maintainunityin the family, community, nation, and race.
  • Kujichagulia:Self-Determination: …
  • Ujima: Collective Work andResponsibility. …
  • Ujamaa:Cooperative Economics. …
  • Nia:Purpose. …
  • Kuumba:Creativity. …
  • Imani:Faith.
