Rooms to try this week: Black History Month and Lunar New Year

Feb 9, 2021

This week we’ve added rooms for more of February’s celebrations, honoring Black History Month and Lunar New Year. Though it’s harder to have in-person celebrations right now, we hope these make your virtual get-togethers a little more festive. 

These Premium features are always free for one hour a day for all mmhmm users. Go to the Rooms tab, click on ‘+ More Rooms…’ at the top, and add these to your list.

We've featured our lovely designer, Bonnie Kate Wolf, in the animated rooms:
