    Happy New Year to All ! I wish I could watch "KOHAKU", eat some of my favorite "o-sechi" and read all those "nengajyo" ! (I am way beyond the age of receiving "otoshidama", now I just give it ! )

    Otoshidama... that's the one where the relatives' kids, now in junior high school and part time working age, expect you to give them money for making them come to visit you for the first time since last New Year's, lol.
