Kwanzaa
Today marks the start of the seven-day Kwanzaa festival, a holiday observed by many African-American families in recognition of their African heritage. Kwanzaa, which means first fruit in Swahili, begins with a special harvest feast, known as karamu, held on the first day.

Kwanzaa begins on December 26th and continues until New Years Day, January 1st.
