Oni wa soto! Fuku wa uchi! Out with the devil! In with happiness! That’s what’s said on February 3rd in some households and shrines in Japan. Not to mention the beans that go flying all over the house or wherever. It’s Setsubun,the beginning of a new season (spring). I’m all for driving out “devils” and whatever distractions or nusances that come my way, especially things that drive me crazy.
鬼は外! 福は内! The Devil’s Out!
