The First Seven Days is Over

The first seven days of new year is called Matsunouchi. ( meaning within the pine) .
The pine tree decoration at the gate or on the door is removed. Yes, I did remove my decoration yesterday. Usually, people are busy with greetings, checking accumulated e-mails during this first seven days. ( They came back to the office on 4th or 5th this year). From next week, things and businesses will be started in full swing.
