It's the last month of the year! Let's make it count and finish this year strong by reflecting on Kwanzaa- the principles and values it holds: Umoja (Unity), Kujichagulia (Self-Determination), Ujima (Collective Work and Responsibility), Ujamaa (Cooperative Economics), Nia (Purpose), Kuumba (Creativity), and Imani (Faith)
The word "Kwanzaa" comes from the phrase "matunda ya kwanza," which means "first fruits" of harvests. Kwanzaa is a weeklong cultural holiday meant to celebrate the pan-African history and encourage pride in the Black community. It is observed from December 26th to January 1st. Kwanzaa is celebrated by decorating, music, food, drinks, and of course, gifts!
In the next few days, we'll guide you on how to celebrate this vibrant tradition and immerse together in the diverse African-American culture through Kwanzaa. It has a lot to teach us about togetherness, gratitude, shared heritage, and setting intentions for the future.
Let's get ready for Kwanzaa and elevate the celebration with our hibiscus-spiced nonalcoholic mocktail with 400 years of Caribbean heritage. If you're gifting our mocktail, be sure to leave a note and wishes for your loved ones. Our fulfillment team is working hard to ship your orders fast/same day for you to receive your bottles just in time for Kwanzaa, Christmas, New Year, and all celebrations in between!
