Our family celebrates the new year by following some of the traditional Japanese customs practiced on New Years Day. The celebration is called oshogatsu. In our oshogatsu the family gets together and feasts on special dishes. Every dish is symbolic of something we might wish to take with us into the new year (e.g., health, joy, prosperity). The trick is to eat a little bit of everything-then you’re covered!
I wish you a little bit of everything for the new year! Happy New Year to you.
