Have yourself a Māori Christmas

For me a Māori Christmas is about whanaungatanga (strengthening family connection). Each year I try to incorporate things that mean something to us as a whānau and bring us closer together. Things like korero (talking), pukapuka (books), toi (arts) and craft and waiata (music) are wonderful ways to connect with one another. These are things I love and that inspire me.
