What do you know about New Zealand in January?  January is the second month of our summer. It's hot at times and you can get sunburnt. It also still rains but there are usually long fine spells (a length of time not magic!) between showers. Occasionally there are tropical cyclones. Some workers with families go on holiday now because students go back to school late in the month. The camp grounds are full of tourists and the beaches become crowded, especially at the weekend. New Zealanders love gardening and the lawnmowers are noisy too.

Auckland's Anniversary is the fourth Monday 29th. See the January photo quiz for useful vocabulary.
