Winter Solstice

December 22nd is 冬至(toji = winter solstice), and we ate pumpkins and put two 柚子(yuzu = a kind of citrus fruit) into a bath.

There's a custom to eat pumpkins and take a yuzu bath on toji in Japan.

It is said in Japan that you won't get a cold if you've done these two things.

Anyway, tomorrow is the day of Eigonoie speech contest.

It's actually not the speech contest, but I wish all of my students succeed and have a good experience.
