Today, I will introduce about Japanese events. Do you know Japanese event? For example, Japanese Christmas, Japanese Halloween, Japanese summer festival, Japanese New year’s day, coming of age day, the festival day for children aged seven, five and three and so on.

First, I am going to talk about Japanese New year’s day. Do you know Osechi? It mean New Year dishes. We can eat it for January 1th. It contains a variety of dishes such as black beans, herring roe, a rolled omelet mixed with fish paste, steamed fish past and so on in a tiered of boxes. In December 31 is Omisoka. We have to eat Toshikoshi soba in Omisoka. Toshikoshi soba is bringer of good luck. It is also Japanese culture and custom. It started from the Edo Period. It meaning that cut off from one year of disaster crisis this year.

Second, will talk about New Year’s card and New Year’s game. We will send New Year's cards for such as friends and teacher. In foreign country send a Christmas card is not a New Year's card. We also doing play game. It is Hanetsuki and Fukuwarai and so on. Hanetsuki is a traditional game that has been done to the Japanese New Year. It has a wooden tool that two people called battledore face to face, and Uchiau the wings. May be given punishment to attach the black face if hit it becomes there.
Conclusion, New Year is a very important event for Japanese people. We spend a family hearthstone and we hope as will be a good year.
