On the seventh and last day of Kwanzaa, the black candle is lit, then the farthest left red, the utmost right green, the next red candle, the 2nd green candle at the right hand side of the black candle, the final red, then the last and final green candle. This represents the 7th Kwanzaa principle, Imani ( Faith) meaning  the belief in God, family, heritage, leaders, and others that will lead to the victory of Africans around the world.. The principle of the day is discussed, the unity cup is shared and the candles are extinguished. This is the day of Karamu or Kwanzaa feast. The spirit of celebration increases a lot when many of the family members invite their loved ones and friends.
