THE BUZZ: Insert Country Name Here Edition

Good Morning Community!

It's definitely Northern Hemisphere summer now, and that means we CELEBRATE ALL THE COUNTRIES!!!

We just finished Canada Day (Can you PLEASE take back your geese now?), July 4th is American Independence Day (KA-BOOM!  'Merica!), and Bastille Day is July 14th (Oui, Oui!).  Are there any countries that we're missing or major celebrations in your area that you want to give a shout out to?  We'd love to hear about them below.

In the meantime, it's time to dive into...

Hi everyone! So, admittingly.. we had Gremlins in the system this morning and 1) you may have received two emails about this blog and 2) the title for one of them is really, really long. We apologize!

My work is in the Northern Hemisphere, but I live in New Zealand. And here we just celebrated Matariki - which marks the Maori (indigenous peoples of New Zealand) new year, and also mid-winter. It's all about short days, stargazing, creation stories, hunkering down in the cold weather with loved ones, and remembering those who have passed on.

You just missed Matariki here in New Zealand. Matariki is the Māori name for a cluster of stars which is visible in our night sky at a specific time of the year. This year, from 25 to 28 June, Matariki re-appeared in the dawn sky – signalling the start of the Māori New Year. 
It is a time to celebrate new life, to remember those who’ve passed and to plan for the future. And it’s a time to spend with whānau and friends – to enjoy kai (food), waiata (song), tākaro (games) and haka.
Next year - 2020 - Matariki will rise between 13 and 16 July.
