I can’t believe it’s a New Year again! 2011 is the year of the rabbit, which means a more chill and laid back year compared to the 2010 tiger volatility. I kept in with the rabbity tradition by having a very relaxing New Year countdown — didn’t go too crazy and face hordes of people unlike all my previous new years. I considered going to a temple for hatsumode, or making the first visit to a shrine in the New Year (equivalent to Times Square countdown, albeit with more religious and cultural significance), since I was in Tokyo to ring in the New Year Japanese style. However, I decided against it, and I’m kind of glad I did. Check out the picture to see how crazy crowded it was!
Hope you had a relaxing New Year countdown as well AbFob readers. Hoppy Rabbity New Year to you — here’s to a fobulous 2011!
