Running from December 26 to January 1, and based on seven guiding principles, one for each day of the observance, each gathering begins by lighting candles, exchanging gifts, and adorning homes in the African colors of red, green, and black. Throughout the week, favorite African-American dishes, as well as traditional African, Caribbean, and South American recipes are on many tables. Some of the dishes we will make include This holiday season, look to Kwanzaa and Pan – African traditions to rejuvenate your holiday menu.
