Kwanzaa has begun and will end on January 1, 2018. Here are seven reasons to celebrate with your family!

1. The occasion promotes unity

Kwanzaa has ancient roots that date back to Egypt and Nubia. All of these traces reflect on family and the importance of community. What is wrong with a holiday like that?


2. Kwanzaa has African roots

Those looking to connect with the Motherland may find fulfillment in Kwanzaa. The seven-day-long holiday event sheds light on traditions of Africa that are centuries old.

3. The holiday encourages you to appreciate the universe

You don’t have to necessarily believe in a higher power to celebrate Kwanzaa. It is, however, beneficial to look around and say, “Hey, nature is a beautiful thing.”

4. Kwanzaa is a time to appreciate the past and learn lessons for the future

There’s a saying that alludes to history repeating itself. Thankfully, Kwanzaa is an occasion that encourages you to appreciate the past and all of its lessons to secure a better future. Imagine what the state of the world would be if we knew our history and determined to refrain from making the same mistakes. Such is the power of the season.
