This Kwanzaa, dress up your home, gather family around the table, and celebrate the true meaning of the holiday. Kwanzaa is a weeklong celebration that links African traditions and American customs. Kwanzaa runs from December 26 through January 1 of each year, and it can be celebrated with our traditional Kwanzaa recipes made into a feast. On each day of a Kwanzaa celebration, the host serves a dish from a different symbolic place, such as Africa, the Caribbean, and South America. In addition to delicious foods, we share the Kwanzaa traditions to take part in, such as a daily lighting of one of seven candles placed in a traditional kinara candleholder. It's common to make some Kwanzaa crafts, which are then given as homemade gifts. Families also put out Kwanzaa decorations, including colorful African cloth and, often, displays made with fresh fruits and vegetables, which emphasize the harvest theme of the Kwanzaa celebration. Browse all our Kwanzaa ideas for great ideas on every aspect of your holiday celebration.
