Setsubun 2012

February 3rd is the day of seasonal division called Setsubun in Japan.

On this day, people throw roasted soybeans out the door (or at a member of family wearing demon mask) and say "Demons out! Luck in!"

Afterwards they also eat the number of roasted soybeans, which corresponds to their age.

I ate 24 beans.

I hope good luck comes to me this year.
