Habari Gani? Imani!

1 Jan

Imani means faith!

Light the previous candles and in same way and order as the previous nights, then light the remaining green candle. The last candle! This is the last night, guys! It’s also New Year’s. 🙂

Discuss faith and what this personally means to you (whatever religion you practice or if you don’t practice a religion…this is personal to you). After that call out “Harambee!” seven times. Then, guess what you do? You give zawadi (gifts) to immediate family members to encourage growth, self-determination, achievement, and success, and promote or reward accomplishments and commitments kept. Haha, gotcha!! Gifts are usually handmade (self-determination, purpose, and creativity, remember?) When you accept the gift, you’re implying that you’re willing to follow through with the principles taught during Kwanzaa. And uh…then you eat! ^_^ You knew it was coming.

This has been a Kwanzaa celebration with me, thanks for joining, and I hope to see you next year :).
