Apple today announced that it will be holding a one-day New Year's shopping event in Japan on Thursday, January 2, offering customers an Apple Store gift card worth up to ¥24,000 with the purchase of select Apple products.

Full details have yet to be revealed, but last year, Apple Store gift card values ranged between ¥3,000 and ¥24,000 for select iPhone, iPad, Mac, Apple Watch, Apple TV, and Beats models. New products like the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, Apple Watch Series 5, and AirPods Pro will likely not qualify.

The event will take place in the Apple Store app and at Apple Stores in Japan. It is similar to Apple's four-day Black Friday shopping event held in the United States and other countries earlier this year.

Apple used to run a "Lucky Bag" promotion in Japan, offering customers an assorted bag of products and accessories, but it stopped doing so after 2015.

Wow, that's like $220 bucks. I could buy a small slice of a monitor stand for that!

It's not a mouse, it's the iconic Japanese animated dog named Little Charo.

What's with the Mouse Apple? I think it's neat.
A 10 second duck duck go search revealed the answer: Chinese New Year 2020 animal sign is the White Rat. Chinese calendar combines solar, lunar and 60 Stem-Branch counting systems. The 60 Stem-Branch calendar uses the names of Yin Yang Five Elements (Metal, Water, Wood, Fire, and Earth) and 12 animals to rank the sequences. Five elements are connected to five colors - White, Black, Green, Red, and Brown. So the Chinese use the color animal name to count the year. The name of 2020 is the Male Metal Rat. White is connected to Metal. Therefore, 2020 is also called White Metal Rat Year.
