Being born in Japan, we always celebrated New Years Day. This Japanese tradition has been passed down from my grandparents, to my parents and now to me. Since my parents are no longer living, I have continued this tradition of Oshogatsu at home in America. We celebrate not only our Japanese tradition but my birthday on New Years Day. I turned 73 years old on January 1, 2021.
