The Second Day of Kwanzaa is Today December 27th

To represent the second doctrine or principle the left most red candle is lit after the  black one. This principle represents Kujichagulia (koo-jee-chah-goo-LEE-ah) or Self- Determination.
The process goes on in the same way as the first day of Kwanzaa. The person who lights the candle on 2nd day makes a  statement  which is related to the second principle. He or she also continues with a passage or a poem on that particular principle and explains how this doctrine is related to the meaning of their lives. The Unity cup is again shared between the members and the candles are extinguished.
