Hi %recipient.firstname%,


In a few days, there will be a total lunar eclipse. There won't be another one until May of 2021!

In North and South America, the eclipse will be visible in the evening of Sunday January 20. In Europe and Africa, it can be seen in the erly hours of Monday January 21.

To find out more about lunar eclipses and to learn why the Moon appears red during an eclipse, watch this video with Mr. Owl.



The lunar new year, i.e. the Chinese New Year, starts on February 5. In China, this is a 15-day long holiday that ends with the Lantern Festival, when children and their parents go out on the street, carrying a lantern.

On the Animaplates website, you'll find several ways to make lanterns, like for example this model made with a Camembert cheese box.
