さぁ読みましょう!

Matariki is a star cluster which appears in the night sky during
mid-winter according to the Maori Lunar Calendar. The reappearance of
Matariki brings the old lunar year to a close and marks the beginning
of the new year. Hence, Matariki is associated with the Māori New
Year.

Traditionally, festivities were conducted to celebrate Matariki. They
followed the harvesting of crops when the storehouses were full,
freeing up time for family and leisure. These festivities included the
lighting of ritual fires, the making of offerings, and celebrations of
various kinds to farewell the dead, to honour ancestors, and to
celebrate life.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you all later :D
