Japanese New Year’s Cards: “Nengajyou”

An important New Year’s tradition in Japan is to send out New Year’s greeting cards, called nengajyou. The cards often feature the animal from the Chinese zodiac for that year (2006 is the year of the dog). Although these cards usually take the form of postcards, several Japanese LEGO bloggers have posted wonderful electronic New Year’s cards.

Finally, Edwin (a New Zealander posting in Japanese) has posted a pug-themed card made by Edamame05. (Linking directly to the image doesn’t seem to work, so click the link to see the card.)
