The Ornament on The Entrance Door
This is the ornament on the door I picked this year. I usually put this on December 30 and keep it there till January 7. The first 3 days ( Jan. 1 - 3 ) is the core ( ? ) Oshogatsu ( new year celebration period) , Jan. 1 - 7 is also Oshogatsu ( called Matsunouchi) . I feel when I eat " Nanakusa gayu " ( = rice porridge with seven herbs ) in the morning of January 7, new year celebration is over.
