This year, just like the past few years, I spent New Year's Day at my "cousin's" cousin's house. I've known Mari ("cousin") since she was born and this is her cousin, Hannah's, house.
Since almost everyone there was Japanese or at least half Japanese most of us understand what oshogatsu is. It's basically the celebration of the new year on the first day of the year. Lots of good food with lots of symbolism like long life, old age, vitality, fertility, and strength.
