InSITE--Kwanzaa Online

As we celebrate the holiday season, one of newest--and least known--continues this week: Kwanzaa. if you want to know about Kwanzaa, go right to the source. In this case, the source is the man who came up with the idea back in the '60s. His official Kwanzaa website traces the event, literally back to its roots, with information about the background both in Africa and here at home.

It really is a primer on what Kwanzaa is all about and the meaning, in particular, of the seven principles, the real reason for this season.

Kwanzaa relies on symbolism to represent the concepts, and the site explains those very well.

There's also a section on carrying out the traditions of the holiday with your family and friends, going into some detail about just how to host the ceremony and get the most meaning out of it, plus some suggestions on digging a little deeper into the meaning, and carrying it through in your daily life.
