Kwanzaa

Kwanzaa is an African-American harvest and community festival that was founded in 1966 by Dr. Maulana Karenga, as a way of reaffirming African-American identity, instilling knowledge and pride in African roots, and reinforcing bonds among members of the community. Kwanzaa is now celebrated by an estimated 18 million people in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Britain, India and some African nations. Our Kwanzaa page includes links to more information about this celebration, including history, crafts, recipes and more.

November 28 is Thanksgiving Day

On the fourth Thursday of November we celebrate Thanksgiving, a day to give thanks and celebrate the bounty of the harvest by gathering with family and friends for a special dinner, traditionally featuring turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing and pumpkin pie. It commemorates the feast held in 1621 by the Pilgrims and the Wampanoag to celebrate the Plymouth Colony’s first successful harvest.

Happy Halloween!

Halloween Guide — Halloween is celebrated on October 31st. It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holiday All Saints’ Day, and is celebrated with Jack O’Lanterns, costumes, candy, trick-or-treating, and scary stories about witches, ghosts and goblins.
