Do enjoy the article entitled What is Kwazaa?
In keeping with the informatory note of the article, I wanted to list The Seven Principles of Kwanzaa
, also known as the Nguzo Saba
of this lovely cultural celebration.
I also wanted to list the corresponding seven days, from December 26th (the beginning) through January 1st (commencement) because I once heard a man from another race call Kwanzaa a bull_ _ _ _ holiday...
To that I must say, Just because you cannot embrace another person�s culture or beliefs does not mean you have to be derogatory
Ethnic beauties, I have also listed the names for each day, in English and Swahili...December 26
