Happy New Year! (Japan time)

Yes, it is still December 31st in Canada, but it’s already January 1st in Japan. Happy New Year!

As I wrote in the previous post, I made a Christmas greetings web site for my Canadian friends. It’s been slightly modified and now it is a New Year’s Day greetings site for my Japanese family, relatives and friends. Sending New Year’s Day greeting cards is Japanese tradition, just like sending Christmas cards in Western countries. Here is the illustration from the web site.

Happy New Year 2014, the Year of the Horse

2014 is the year of the Horse, so I combined Christmas and the horse to make this illustration. Daikoku Santa Claus, sitting on bales of rice, rides a chuck wagon to bring fortune to everyone. He is Calgarian!

Wish everyone good luck for the year 2014.
