Kwanzaa is an African American holiday celebrating African American history, heritage and culture. The week-long celebration is observed from December 26th to January 1 and culminates with gift giving and a big dinner. Each night of Kwanzaa, families light the kinara – a seven candle holder.

I have visited Italy several times in my twenties but haven long since never returned. I love architecture, history, food, and scenery and I dream of a road trip around the Amalfi Coast. Those old hotels staggered over rocky cliffs with stunning views of the blue sea, fresh seafood and local wines, boats and beaches and botanical beaches. * sigh *
So I didn & # 39; t start the series by bringing holiday vibe from the west coast of Italy with you with these … Read more
