Mickey Mouse celebrates with young Japanese people, who’ll be 20 years old this year during a ceremony Monday at Tokyo Disneyland to mark “Seijin no Hi” (Coming-of-Age Day). The holiday, held on the second Monday of January, celebrates young people who have turned 20—Japan’s official age of adulthood—over the previous year or will do so before March 31 this year.

    I certainly don't intend to Japan-bash but when I saw this on the TV, I immediately thought "Cinderella and Prince Charming" would have been more in the same "age group"...

    At the risk of sounding condescending, I'd say it's time to avoid a footloose and fancy-free life. Congratulations on Adults' Day!
