This Saturday at 9:00 am is our osoji or year end clean-up. In Japan, the new year is a time of renewal where everyone gets a fresh start.  To ensure that we get off on the right foot, we try and clear out any and all thing that have built up over the year.  My mom used to say, "Don't bring the old dust into the new year."

Please come out and help.  After all, you contributed to making the mess.

We really could use the help!
