Kwanzaa Gifts for Brother

Kwanzaa means ‘fruits of the first harvest’ in the African language Kiswahili. It is a harvest festival founded by Dr.Maulana Karenga, and is celebrated from December 26th to January 1st. During these seven days people of African American origin, come together as a family, to celebrate their heritage, culture, community and remember the African leaders and their sacrifices. This is also a time for merry making, feasting, singing and dancing. Children are explained the meaning and importance of family values, and are taught to create and maintain a bond among brothers and sisters.
Each day of Kwanzaa includes prayer and greetings, with a focus on the seven principles, namely, unity, self-determination, collective work & responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity and faith. The seven corresponding symbols of Kwanzaa are, fruits, nuts and vegetables, a place mat, an ear of corn, seven candles, a candle holder, the unity cup and gifts.
