Here are 50 “Happy Kwanzaa” greetings and well wishes.

Story by Jessica Sager —

Kwanzaa is an annual week-long celebration of African and African American culture, honoring pan-African culture, community and families, and their respective contributions to the world at large. This year, Kwanzaa begins on Dec. 26, 2022, and ends on Jan. 1, 2023.

The Kwanzaa holiday honors the Nguzo Saba, or Seven Principles, of African culture. These are Umoja (unity), Kujichagulia (self-determination), Ujima (collective work and responsibility), Ujamaa (cooperative economics), Nia (purpose), Kuumba (creativity) and Imani (faith). It’s a fantastic time for reflection, goal-setting and family.

Whether or not you personally celebrate Kwanzaa, you may be searching for the perfect words to share with those who do. These Happy Kwanzaa greetings will bring smiles to their recipients, as well as show your respect and reverence for the holiday and culture that it celebrates.
