There are traditional procedures to celebrate Kwanzaa. Set a table with African cloth and place a mkeka mat kinara (the candle holder), mishumaa saba (the seven candles), mazao (crops), muhindi (corn), kikombe cha umoja (the unity cup) and zawadi (the gifts) on it. On each day, a candle is lit to symbolize each principal.
