Kwanzaa begins December 26 and lasts until the first day of January. Kwanzaa is a time when people come together to celebrate their African heritage. During Kwanzaa, families decorate their homes with many unique Kwanzaa symbols. One of the items is a Kinara, which is a candle holder. For each day of Kwanzaa a candle is lit to celebrate the seven Kwanzaa principles. Three candles should be colored red to represent struggles faced. Three should be colored green to represent a prosperous future. One large black candle in the center represents the richness of African skin. Day 1 – Umoja:
