Joyous Kwanzaa! Initiated in 1966, Kwanzaa has grown to become a celebrated holiday among millions worldwide. We offer an array of Kwanzaa Invitations that announce your event with traditional or contemporary style, including designs that feature a photo uploaded from your computer or social media. All our invitations are free for you to downliad, print or send online with RSVP from our website.
For an authentic Kwanzaa, transform an area of your home into a tribute to African art and objects, fabric, and books. Feature homemade decorations and gifts that reflect an African flare. Create menus rich with flavors rooted in African cuisine, and display the kinara (candleholder) and its surrounding symbols in the center of the celebrating. A Kwanzaa set can be purchased, but, in keeping with the principle of Creativity, it is encouraged that as many items as possible be handcrafted by the family.
Make a Kwanzaa plan, but leave room for improvisation. Choose stories and songs and dances to be shared each night of the holiday that reflect the evening’s Principle. Prep your best African-inspired recipes, reserving the most mouthwatering masterpieces for the feast of Karamu on December 31st. Let children old enough to serve guests offer holiday goodies with a welcoming smile!
Kwanzaa can be rich in meaning and tradition for those new to the holiday as much as to those with years of Kwanzaa memories with family and friends. Add a new or found or handcrafted African element to your display each year to keep the celebration fresh, and have a Joyous Kwanzaa!
