All Day

Kwanzaa is an annual, week-long celebration that takes place in the United States. It pays homage to African heritage and is observed from December 26 through January 1. This seven-day celebration of African roots is observed by people of all faith backgrounds, since it’s not tied to any religion. Instead, this African American and Pan African holiday is anchored by SEVEN PRINCIPLES, said each day for seven days.
