Setsubun: Japanese Bean-throwing festival
February 3rd, the day after my birthday, the Japanese have yet another great festival to celebrate that the Spring is arriving.
And this they do while throwing beans (could be soya beans or peanuts sometime) on a member at your family that wears a uni (demon mask).
Out with the devil, in with the luck. 🙂
Uni wa soto, fuku wa uchi
