Meaningful Gifts For Kwanzaa
The 1st Day: Unity
Give the gift of togetherness. Celebrate the first day of Kwanzaa with friends and family at a small gathering at your home, church or a restaurant. About.com suggests finding group events and activities to celebrate with other people (only 13% of African-Americans celebrate the holiday):
Check local newspaper listings, black churches, cultural centers or museums to find out where to celebrate Kwanzaa in your community. If an acquaintance of yours celebrates Kwanzaa, ask for permission to attend a celebration with her. However, it would be offensive to go as a voyeur who doesn’t care about the day itself but is curious to see what it’s about. Go because you agree with the principles of the day and are committed to implementing them in your own life and community.
