Chinese New Year
Chinese New Year’s is celebrated by billions of people around the world. This year, the date of Chinese New Year begins on the 25th of January. It is a 15-day celebration, beginning on the first day of the new moon, and ends on the full moon. We will focus our art, music, and trivia sessions on this beautiful culture.

National Puzzle Day
Don’t be puzzled on January 29th; it’s National Puzzle Day, which honors puzzles of all sizes, shapes, and forms. Crossword puzzles are by far the most common. On this day, we will do crosswords, picture puzzles, Sudoku, or any other kind of puzzle that you prefer. Working on puzzles helps us keep our brain sharp and it can even improve our memory! Later in the afternoon at 3:00 p.m. we will have a friendly domino competition to see who can win the most games in 1 hour. Best of Luck!
