It is the last day in 2008 today. We are still rushing to send the new year foods to the customers. In Japan, we welcome a new year with a fresh atmosphere by cleaning up rooms and making foods. We finish most of such works by the end of the year and have rest and spend time with family, relatives, and friends for about 3 days usually without doing any work. Anybody who had a good year in 2008 and not so good year in 2008 think to start a new year on a new note. Many people visit temples and strike the bell through the night. We wish you have a wonderful year in 2009.
