Kakizome Japanese Traditional First Writing of the Year at Art Mid-Hudson

Kakizome Japanese Traditional First  Writing of the Year at Art Mid-Hudson

Kakizome, which translates to "first writing," takes place within the first few days of each new year. Traditionally people would use calligraphy to write poems that expressed their hopes and aspirations for the coming year. The poems were later burned, as if to seal the fate of the hope, a practice reminiscent of blowing out candles on a birthday cake after making a wish.
