Year Of The Cow

Another New Year’s tradition in Japan is that every year is assigned an animal from the Chinese zodiac. This year is the year of the cow. Most houses will have a decoration of that animal some where in their house. Here’s ours.

Also everyone sends New Year’s postcard to each other, much like Christmas cards in western countries. Most of them have a picture of the animal for that year on them too.
