Academy Students Participate in Kakizome Traditon

Academy Japanese classes started the New Year with Kakizome, calligraphy “first writing”, wishing for the success in their language learning.
Traditionally, elementary schools in Japan start their New Year with calligraphy, writing characters related to the New Year.
Kakizome is a traditional Japanese calligraphy written at the beginning of the year or more precisely on the 2nd of January. In modern times, people often write out auspicious kanji . School pupils up to senior high school are assigned kakizome as their winter holiday homework. Each year on January 5, several thousand calligraphers gather in Tokyo for a kakizome event that is widely covered by media. The kakizome paper is usually burned on the 14th of January during the festival. If the burning paper flies high, it is said that the person will be able to write a more fair hand.

This year, the students in Japanese 2, 2 Honors wrote 元旦 which means the morning of the new year’s day. The students in 3 Honors, 4, 5 and AP classes wrote, 酉 or 酉年 which means the year of the rooster.
