About 6 hours to 2007.

2006 is leaving and 2007 is coming.

People are preparing for 2007 and Kadomatsu is one of Japanese decorations in a New Year.

Kadomatsus are a pair of pine decorations and are placed in front of gates of a house in New Year season. It is consisted of pine, bamboo and others. Pine and bamboo are symbols of long life and gods are said to descend to pine.

Bonne année, bonne santé

Good year, good health
time passes, the years slip by. When a new year starts, one always wonders if it will bring peace and happiness to each one… Close the eyes and make a wish!

明けましておめでとうございます。今年もよろしく。

We forgot to ask Mom to send us some Omochi this year, so we welcomed the new year with Okonomi Yaki - it was actually quite good! I hope 2007 is as picturesque as was 2006.
