As we enter the Year of the Ox, check out some of the traditions that go along with this holiday here – and, for a bunch of socially-distanced ideas to celebrate, check out the festival list on this website!
Family Day is coming up on Monday (Feb. 15) and, even though we are all adjusting to COVID-19 safety precautions, we are all feeling grateful for those closest to us at this time.
Here are some ideas for a fun (and socially distanced!) Family Day weekend:
CRANBROOK: The Cranbrook History Centre is offering a new YOUNG HISTORIANS program, helping record what the last year has been like in Cranbrook for future generations. If you don’t feel comfortable coming into the museum, you can participate online – check out more info here.
KELOWNA: The City of Kelowna is running a Family Day Active Photo Contest, encouraging families to participate in any kind of physical activity and tagging #KelownaFamilyDay to enter. Contest runs from Feb. 12 to Feb. 16, and photos can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org to be eligible for prizes. Check out details here.
Stay safe and healthy, wear a mask, and have a Happy Family Day!
Happy Thanksgiving everyone! How’d you spend the weekend? Send us a picture!
Today (December 21st) is the Winter Solstice, which is officially the “shortest” day of the year!
While today marks the least amount of daylight we see for the year here in the Northern Hemisphere, it also means that the nighttime is the longest of the year. Close to the North Pole, there is darkness 24 hours a day! Here is a picture that shows how that works: https://goo.gl/images/1paZiy
The opposite of the Winter Solstice is the Summer Solstice, which will be on June 21st. When it is time for the Summer Solstice at the North Pole, there is daylight for 24 hours a day!
If you want to learn more about how the Winter and Summer Solstices work, you can check out this YouTube video:
