Gifts and Decorations for A Meaningful and Festive CelebrationBook - 1998
Drape your home in the traditional African red, green, and black, and celebrate Kwanzaa in high style with this brightly illustrated collection of stories, crafts, poetry, and recipes. It goes day by day, presenting the principles, symbols, and candles for each. On the first strive for umoja: unity in the family, community, nation, and race. Light a black candle, and set out a mazao, or basket of fruits, vegetables, and nuts -- which you can make yourself, along with a delicious Nigerian Mango salad. Instructions cover wreaths, a colorful kente-cloth tunic top, a mkeka or woven-straw placemat, a Kwanzaa banner, scrapbook, and decoupaged kinara -- the ritual candleholder. With these glorious projects you're sure to remember the principle of the sixth day: Kuumba -- or creativity!
