Every week a New Zealand Blogging Community called #NZBloggers holds a weekly blog post challenge. This Week’s challenge is the theme Matariki. To find out more about getting involved or for checking out the other bloggers posts visit the #brunchclub website.
In New Zealand we are currently celebrating Matariki (The Māori New Year). Just like any new year it is a time to look back and be thankful for the year past and look forward to an exciting future. Traditionally it was also a time to remember those who had died in the past year but rejoice over the harvesting of the winter food supplies, which meant a bit of singing, dancing and feasting. Now thousands of people celebrate Matariki as New Zealand Thanksgiving.
