Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu! Happy New Year! This year is the year of the Tiger, a good year for creative projects apparently. Today Japanese people are sitting around eating special New Year`s Day meals and talking about last night`s `Red and White` Singing Competition in which various talentos sang a song, and it is generally agreed that Susan Boyle (who sang live on the show) was the best thing on it by far.
Me, I`m sitting at home in front of the heater eating dried sugared persimmons and reading my New Year cards (the post office makes a special delivery on the day).
