“Setsubun has been celebrated in Japan for thousands of years, on February 3rd, as a way to commemorate the end of winter (daikan) and the coming of spring (risshun). Though the days are still very cold with snow days ahead of us, it is a special time during which the concept of rebirth is celebrated, as nature gradually prepares for spring!” - Asumi from @littlemoments_tokyo.
I want to share with you the beauty and the diversity of celebrations from different cultures around the world and about how families mindfully celebrate them. You might find inspiration in the way of preparing and authentically celebrating these festivals. Beyond rituals and traditions there are values.
