This is a photo from a couple of years ago. My Japanese friends organized a New Year potluck for our kids. Many of Japanese moms who live outside Japan want our kids to experience "Japanese" oshogatsu. Food is, of course, the main aspect of our oshogatsu tradition. All Japanese moms brought some osgohatsu foods. It was so delicious! Later, we let our kids make shiratama dango and made oshiruko, since nobody had kine and usu for mochitsuki. It was not the traditional way to celebrate oshogatsu, but it was fun!
