A Happy New Year To You All!
Akemashite Omedeto Gozaimasu!!
Hope you all had a great winter holidays! Now I'm happy to be back again.
This photo shows "kagami-mochi" my daughter created at her day-care just before the New Year's Eve. "Kagami-mochi" is something we Japanese displays in the room during New Year's Days. Mochi is "cake made of boiled rice" according to my dictionary. Kinda hard to explain... Anyway, this represents Japanese Oshogatu (New Year's days).
Since this one is made by a three-year-old, it's a bit ugly shaped. Ha ha ha!! But she did a great job as a 3 yrs old!!
The real one looks like this. We buy from a store which is already decorated like this way. We have a history of doing this for over a thousand years. Interesting?
