The Glowing Seven Stars

Have you ever gazed up on a group of seven glowing stars? You might have seen the seven sparkling stars called Matariki.
Matariki is Maori New Year. Most of the year, Matariki stays glowing in the sky and vanishes during late April and comes back during late May or early June. When Matariki has arrived, it is time to celebrate Maori New Year.
Celebrating Maori New Year is a time you can go fishing for some yummy kaimoana. You can eat the kaimoana at a feast that your whanau have prepared. People celebrate the Maori New Year in different ways so maybe you can celebrate it differently.
Tonight, go and head outside to try and find the seven sisters twinkling above you. Who know, you might be lucky and spot the shining seven stars.
