Wee Winter Wonderland! See it between now and January 7th at the Mini Time Machine Museum of Miniatures! http://bit.ly/2AFTWrA Kwanzaa is an African-American and Pan-African holiday celebrated for seven days beginning on December 26th. Ron Karenga founded the holiday which was first celebrated in 1966-1967 in the midst of the Black Freedom Movement. The name of the holiday is derived from the Swahili phrase “matunda ya kwanza” which means first fruits of the harvest. Kwanzaa is based on the African “first fruits” celebrations recorded in African history as far back as ancient Egypt and Nubia. #TMTMtucson #tucson #tucsonmuseums #WeeWinterWonderland #holiday #kwanzaa #miniatures #decorations
