Today is Setsubun, which I've written about in detail here.

It is a yearly ritual which is held every February 3rd, the day before the first day of Spring for the Japanese Lunar calendar.

In Osaka, we silently eat ehomaki, uncut sushi, facing a specific direction that changes from year to year, while making a wish. (This year's direction is hoku-hoku-sei (N-N-W)).

Since I didn't have time to buy or make ehomaki, and since there are so many non-traditional versions of ehomaki out there, we're eating "eho-spam musubi" this morning.

The weather is supposed to warm up over the weekend and then the weather will go back to cold next week.

Hope you have a great weekend.
