As is traditional each night, participants greet each other with Habari gani (Ha-ba-ri ga-ni) or What is the news with you? On December 31st, the sixth day of Kwanzaa, a joyous celebration called a Karamu (kah-RAH-moo) is held, with food, drink, dance, music and gift giving with family and friends. It is a time of reassessment and recommitment to the seven principles of Kwanzaa.
On day six, celebrants reflect on the principle of Kuumba (koo-OOM-bah), which means creativity. The goal of Kuumba (koo-OOM-bah) is to do everything possible to make a difference and leave the community in better condition than what was inherited. The principle implies a daily investment in the future, or a donation to eternity.
