Kwanzaa - Kujichagulia

Kwanzaa (First Fruits) is essentially a harvest celebration. Like any harvest festival, Kwanzaa is a recognition and appreciation the results (harvest) from the previous season of planning, planting, nurturing, and work. While Kwanzaa is celebrated for seven days (Dec. 26 - Jan. 1), it is the practice (planning, planting, nurturing, and work) of the Nguzo Saba during the remaining 358 days that produce the harvest.
