It is New Year’s Eve.
Year 2014 is leaving and 2015 is coming.
I had buckwheat noodles with family today.
It is Japan’s custom for New Year’s Eve.
We call it ‘Year-Crossing Noodles’.
Noodles are easily cut by teeth.
So, it means ‘Cut off all bad luck I (you) have in the year and welcome New Year without it’.
Happy New Year !!!
