The Hanukkah and Christmas holidays have come and gone, but Kwanzaa, which began Wednesday, is still being celebrated throughout the county and nation in various forms and events.

The Kwanzaa celebration, which begins on Dec. 26 and ends on Jan. 1 each year, will be celebrated by the local nonprofit Nia Cultural Center with its 30th annual Kwanzaa Celebration, “Operational Unity,” at 5 p.m. Saturday at the Old Central Cultural Center at 2627 Ave. M in Galveston.
