Hello world, I hope you all are enjoying the lovely season.
Tokyo is getting colder, and we can see so many gorgeous and sweet Christmas lights around the city. So romantic!
It’s unbelievable that this year has only one more month...!
In Japan, 2009 is the year of ox (cow).
This custom is based on the traditional Chinese astrology. There are 12 animal symbols, which begin with the Rat, and continue to Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Boar (wild pig). (And then it starts again from the Rat.)
Now, it's the Rat year, so the next year is Ox.
We made these cute new year cards. The theme is (of course!) “mooooo!”
Also, these are other new year cards. (They are not related to the topic, though…)
I hope you like our cards :)
Have a powerful weekday!
Rumi from sunny Tokyo
