     Kwanzaa,

    is based on the Nguzo Saba (seven guiding principles), one for each day of the observance.

    Although Kwanzaa is a holiday created for African-American   families to come together and celebrate their ancestral roots,  just as people other than Mexicans celebrate Cinco de Mayo, other races and ethnic groups are welcome to participate in the Kwanzaa rituals.
