The Japanese for “Happy New Year” is a phrase that means congratulations on the rebirthing of the year. The year was thought to have died on Dec. 31st, and then be reborn the next day. A fortunate event, indeed, worthy of celebration, and of congratulating one’s fellow beings, those who are still around to witness it.
What does January 1st mean for you?
