This year I was very happy as I've managed to do our new year in Japanese way, meaning:
On 31st December, we clean the house, clean meaning super duper clean. So we welcome the new year without the dirt from last year.
And I prepared a new year Bento, which traditionally was meant to give 3 liberating days from cooking for the house wives, our's lasted only for a day though.
On the first of January we dress in new and clean underwear and kimono watched the first sunrise all together then scoffed ourselves with the new year Bento.
There are more details that I can gabble on but to cut it short this was one of the best memories when I was little, I hope I can pass it on to our children...
