happy new year from orenji catering!

Last year on New Year's Eve we posted about the Japanese new year's tradition, "hatsuhinode" (はつひので). The sentiment of that post still resonates with us, so we're going to do it again.

From last year's post:

"In Japan, there is a traditional custom known as "hatsuhinode" in which individuals and families travel to beaches or mountains, from which a good view of the glorious first sunrise of the year is available. As the sun rises, the arrival of the New Year is celebrated, and prayers are offered for good health throughout the coming year."

Here, at orenji catering, we would like to take this opportunity to wish the same to all our faithful friends, family, clients, and readers. May 2008bring you all good things-- health, happiness, love, friendship, peace... and good food!
