Happy 2011 !!!

How was your winter holiday?
I am sure everyone had a great warm winter vacation.

In Japan the first seven days of January are traditionally New Year Holidays when I was a child.
Now it is the first three days.
It used to be from New Year Day to January 20th.
Our life is apparently getting busier and faster and I hope it is a good thing.

No matter how rapidly our life style changes, the Japanese New Year cuisine called osechi has not changed much.
I just love looking at them how pretty they are decorated.
Of course it is very delicious and healthy as well.

Wishing you a very wonderful coming year!!!
