What is Kwanzaa?

Happy Kwanzaa! A celebration of African American culture and heritage, Kwanzaa takes place every year from December 26 to January 1. The name Kwanzaa is derived from the phrase “matunda ya kwanza” which means “first fruits” in Swahili. Each family has a Kwanzaa celebration in its own way, but celebrations often include songs and dances, African drums, storytelling, poetry reading, and a large traditional meal. Each of the seven days in the week-long celebration is dedicated to one of The Nguzo Saba, or the seven principles of Kwanzaa: unity, self-determination, collective work and responsibility, cooperative economics, purpose, creativity, and faith. This year, celebrate this special time of year with loved ones with one-of-a-kind Kwanzaa cards. Our collection of photo cards honoring this African American tradition will wow your recipients when they receive them in the mail.
