Happy New Year everyone!

We hope all of you had wonderful and safe holidays. Did you do something fun on New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day?

In Seattle, the fireworks of the Space Needle finally came back after two years. In 2020, it was canceled because of the strong wind. In 2021, it didn’t happen because of the pandemic.

Since we are still in the pandemic with the surge of omicron, I (intern at the Interra USA) went to the Gas Works Park to see the Space Needle fireworks while avoiding big crowds.

In Japan, people eat Osechi on New Year’s Day. Each Osechi dish has a meaning. Here are some Osechi dishes and their meanings:

Datemaki (Sweet Rolled Omelet): Attaining more knowledge
Kuromame (Sweet Black Soybeans): Keeping bad energy away, Becoming a hard worker
Kazunoko (Herring Roe): Prosperity of descendants
Kobumaki (Kombu Roll): Spread happiness
Kamaboko (Fish Cakes): The red part is for warding off evil spirits and the white part is for cleansing

You can order Osechi at a Japanese restaurant or a Japanese supermarket in Washington. However, because of the snow in Seattle last year, some restaurants had trouble delivering Osechi.

Did you eat something delicious like Osechi on New Year’s Day? Let us know how you spent your New Year!

In 2022, we will have new products and new projects coming up! So, stay tuned!
