Obama sends wishes to those celebrating Kwanzaa
Friday - 12/27/2013, 4:00pm EST
HONOLULU (AP) -- President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama are sending those celebrating Kwanzaa their hopes for a prosperous and healthy new year.
The Obamas are calling attention to Kwanzaa's seven principles, which include unity, creativity, faith and self-determination. They say each principle represents the essence of the holiday, but also represents shared values that draw Americans together.
They're sending their best wishes to families and communities in the U.S. who are coming together to light the candle holder, called a Kinara, that's used to celebrate Kwanzaa.
The seven-day African-American holiday starts Thursday.
