forget the year (Bonenkai)

Stephanie Gibbs


The Japanese New Year (Oshogatsu) is a time for peace and resolution. Origami cranes (a symbol of longevity and happiness) are used in decorations to bring peace and joy to the New Year.
At the end of the year, “forget the year gatherings” (Bonenkai) are held, to provide an opportunity to leave behind the old year’s worries and troubles.
