Seven candles for Kwanza: describes the origins and practices of Kwanzaa, the seven-day festival during which people of African descent rejoice in their ancestral values. Too many tamales: Maria feels very grown-up helping make Christmas dinner, until she realizes that she may have lost her mother's ring in one of the tamales.
