(CNN) — Friday, December 26th is the first day of Kwanza, which runs through January 1st.

It is aimed at helping African-Americans reconnect with their roots by celebrating African culture.

A professor at California State University at Long Beach created Kwanza in 1966 as a non-religious celebration of family and social values.

Each day is dedicated to a principle: unity, self-determination, collective responsibility, cooperative economics, creativity and faith.

On each night, a new candle is lit on a candelabra that has seven branches.

    Because of this, you want to attain as much gold as
    possible as quickly as you can. Another option to build up your gold is to find
    what items are selling hot. Regardless of the method you pursue, just know that it will
    take time to build up your World of Warcraft gold these ways.
