Kwanzaa is an interpersonal experience requiring at least two people in order to be properly observed. The first day, Nguzo Saba, is a time for family and friends to come together in their homes, churches, schools, community centers, mosques, temples, or at work.
Each day's observance will consist of welcome, ceremony, eating and farewell. Entertainment is also used to connect to ancestral cultures.
