Happy New Year 2011 - the Year of the Rabbit!
In Japan, people eat Oseichi ryori on New Year's. (It's a custom kind of like eating turkey on Christmas!)
Osechi-ryōri (御節料理 or お節料理) are traditional Japanese New Year foods. The tradition started in the Heian Period (794-1185). Osechiare easily recognizable by their special boxes called jūbako, which resemble bentō boxes. Like bentō boxes, jūbako are often kept stacked before and after use.
People (like me) also start drinking on New Year's from the morning too! So, cheers! Here's a photo of our Oseichi Ryori (sorry, when I remembered to take he photo, we had already eaten some of it.)
Happy New Year!

New Years Day report from northern Japan: There's FREE all you care to drink sake at several local buddhist shrines. Goes great with those strange Japanese roots and pickles in the Oseichi meals.
