Japanese New Year's food and tradition

Do you have special food for New Year?
Probably in your country, Christmas  might be more important 
and meaningful than  New Years. But in Japan, we value more 
on the latter and the special New Year's food are prepared 
by mothers or grandmothers every year. 
The food is called Osechi.


 This is the picture of the Osechi which my husband's mother
cooked this year.  All the family gather at this house on the 
very first day of the year every year and share all this food
together.
The interesting thing is that all of each  dish  has special meanings.
Yellowtail has the meaning of success, the Beans means diligent and
the Lotus roots means the future for example.

During the New Year's holidays, family gather at their parents' house 
to celebrate the New year even if they live far.
















Many of us visit the shrines or temples and wish for health
and many other things. we throw some coins into the boxes
in the middle of the house and put hands together then 
make a wish.
Usually people don't tell the others what they wished.
because they believe that it wont's come true if they tell it others.

What did I wish?
It's a secret!
