New Year's Day in Japan

Japanese New Year's Day is just as same as Western's Christmas.
Most people spend time together with their family on this day.
On New Year's Day, we say "Congratulations!" to eath other.
And we eat traditional food like Osechi, Mochi.
Osechi is a special cuisine for New Year that consists of many kinds of ingredients.
Each ingredient has its own meaning, for example Kazunoko means "having many kids".
We also eat mochi on this day.
Mochi is Japanese traditional food called "rice cake" in English.
We decorate "Kagami-mochi" to pray God for family's prosperity.
On New Year's Eve, we watch "The red and white singing contest" on TV.
This program ends at midnight.
So many people celebrate the new year with the ending of this program.
