This year I also received Otoshidama from my old folks here in Japan, my mom's FIL and my MIL. Whatta a lucky thing to start my New Year. I never expected it. How much? Surprisingly alot...
Actually the 4 envelopes are my lil girl's Otoshidama.
お年玉 OTOSHIDAMA, a monetary gift that is given by adults to kids (and not so young) on New Year's day. I think this is also common to many countries like in my homeland Philippines, just a bit different though.
I hope you also had a wonderful thing to start your great New Year...
More updates to come .. that's one of my resolutions this year.
