She must have meant “Kwanzaa.”

During her final floor speech as Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) turned a few heads when she signed off the holiday greetings; Pelosi said “Shwanza” instead of “Kwanzaa.”

Watch the clip above.

From Fox News:

In her sign off – which she claimed “will probably be my last speech as Speaker of the House” – Pelosi said, “I yield back the balance of my time and wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe New Year. Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas. Happy Shwanza. Happy Hanukah.”

Making sure she respected all the major holidays this season, she added, “Whatever it is you celebrate, be safe! Thank you, Mr. Speaker.” Though several Twitter users fixated on “Shwanza” and ridiculed the Democratic Party leader for it.

Conservative digital strategist Greg Price shared the 17 second clip to Twitter, tweeting, “Pelosi ends her final speech as Speaker of the House by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah and a ‘Happy Shwanza.’”

Price then updated a classic Christmas line to reflect Pelosi’s gaffe. “Happy Shwanza to all and to all a good night,” he tweeted.
