New Year’s Wreath

Filed under:★2006,☽2006,Culture,Misc,Odds-n-Ends — posted by JAWjaw on @ 11:35 am

This is a traditional New Year’ s wreath, a shimenawa. The symbolism of the wreath is very similar to that of a Christmas wreath. Each New Year’s Eve, caretakers of homes and businesses hang wreaths on the outside of entrances in the spirit of bringing happiness and prosperity.

This tea cup set was a present. The unusual aspect about the set is that on the inside of the cup is a hidden image of a face of a traditional clad woman.
