December 26th is the first day of Kwanzaa. Each day of Kwanzaa represents a principle each day we light a black, red, or green candle. Today we celebrate togetherness. The black candle is lit, centered on the candle holder, this candle symbolizes Umoja. There also the Unity cup which is filled with fruit juice & passed around.
Umoja is Swahili for Unity.
Without Unity none of the other principles will succeed.
We should practice Umoja daily & support each others dreams. I love you all wheather you celebrate this holiday or not I think everybody could use support.
