Standard

Today is節分; setsu-bun, the last day of winter. We throw roasted soybeans toward outdoors calling “鬼は外; oni-wa-soto” while into the room saying “福は内; fuku-wa-uchi”. This ceremony has been held at home to invite health and happiness, hopefully with coming warm spring. 立春; risshun, the first day of spring comes tomorrow.
