Kwanzaa Day 3 "Collective Work and Responsibility"


My good friend and blogging buddy over at Idle Eyes And A Dormy and I are sharing posts on Kwanzaa this week. Be sure you check out his site for great information on this fantastic winter celebration too.


Ujima (ooh-GEE-mah) is the third day of Kwanzaa and means "collective work and responsibility". On this day we celebrate working together in the community to help others. For Ujima, we pledge to rebuild our communities and to help our people solve our own problems by working together to do it.
