Demons are outside, happiness is inside! "Setsubun"

On February 3rd of Japan there is an event called "Setsubun" that throws beans to demons and drives demons away.

That is to throw away beans (soybeans) to demons that do bad things to people.

In families and kindergartens, a person who dressed as a demon glows loudly "Wow!" And gestures to surprise people. Then the children (even adults do) will loudly throw a bean to a demon shouting "Ogre is Out! Fuku is Out!" In a loud voice.

Then the demon escapes saying, "Ouch, it hurts, I am sorry."

Recently, delicious sweets such as peanuts are used instead of beans. The reason is not to throw things thrown away, to pick up and eat. That's right! It is a very humane and environment friendly event. Let's all together. Let's have a small party with tasty home cooking.
