Devils out, Good luck in!

"Oni wa soto, Fuku wa uchi"

Tomorrow is Setsubun, when you throw out the beans and yell "Oni wa soto, Fuku wa uchi!"  Devils out, Good luck in!  And it is the first day of spring in the lunar calendar.

After you throw the beans, you are supposed to eat the number of beans equal to your age.


  1. We celebrate the first day of Spring on 2/1, too! We always have fresh flowers. This year, we have forsythia that we cut early and is blooming. I love this time of year when things begin to wake.

    1. Steph, Thank you for your comment. Spring is here!
