Happy New Year!
I will introduce “Shogatu”. In Japan, we celebrate a new year. Japanese call it “Shogatu”.
Most workers can take a rest during Shogatu. On December 31, we clean up our houses, so we can welcome a new year.
And on January 1, we eat “Osechi” which is one kind of a lunch box and each food has a meaning. If we eat it, we will live safely in the new year. Children can get money from many relatives which is called “Otoshidama”, so many kids are looking forward to getting it. We send post cards to friends, relatives and acquaintances, which are called “Nengajyo”.
“Shogatu” is one of the most important events for Japanese. I wish you can live happily in this year!
Please look forward to our blog being updated.
