The Year of Snake

2013 is the year of snake.
As someone who is deathly scared of snakes
I’m not so sure how great this year is going to be.
But the year of snake is known to bring
much economic fortune and healthy child deliveries.
Japan is in desperate need of both so
hoping those things come true!
In preparation for new years
a lot of people in Japan make Nengajo.
Nengajo is a traditional new year postcard
that every one sends to each other.
They’re kind of like Christmas cards,
which we don’t really do in Japan.
Most people just print out their Nengajo these days
but I still like to make mine by hand.
And I finally sent out the bulk of mine today.
Hope they get to everyone by new years!
