New Year’s Eve

On New Year’s Eve, many of us enjoy watching TV with our families. One of the most favorite programs is the Red and White Singing Contest,” Kohaku Uta Gassen” in Japanese. Professional singers are supposed to make 2 groups according to gender and compete with each other while singing the songs. Another one is the comedy show performed by professional comedians, which makes us burst into a laugh. Really funny !! After enjoying TV, some go-ahead to the nearby temples to strike temple bells 108 times. They say that the number of 108 represents 108 worldly sins, so we ring in the new year with a fresh mind after releasing from them. Enjoying buckwheat noodles called ” soba”(soba has another meaning, close) is an important custom on this day as well while feeling that New Year being close.
