Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!
Hope 2014 is a great year for everyone!

Today is Shokan (小寒), the 23rd of 24 solar terms (節氣) in the traditional East Asian calendars.
It is the beginning of midwinter. The season of the cold wind and the snow, and the middle day between the winter solstice and the coldest season. From this day, people send winter greeting cards inquiring after other people’s health (寒中見舞い/ kanchu-mimai), instead of new year cards.
