Year End TV Program

I am watching NHK , the public broadcaster in Japan. They are broadcasting year end program
"Kohaku Uta Gassen" ( = Red-women vs. White-men song competition ) . It is 58th this year.
Started at 7:20 p.m. and will last till just before midnight. Since I was child, watching this program has been a custom. After the program, we eat soba-noodle ( This is called Toshikoshi Soba = buckwheat noodle eaten on New Year's Eve) listening to Night Watch Bell. This bell rings 108 times , which is the number of human earthly desires. Wait a moment, I will post the photo of the noodle later or tomorrow morning. You will see our traditional new year food as well.

Wish you all Happy New Year and Full of Happiness !
