A country deeply rooted in history, there are many long-held and important gift giving traditions in Japan that significantly differ from Western culture. While in other parts of the world, people give gifts without expectations, gift giving in Japan is an endless gratitude cycle. There’s a lot of emphasis placed on the act of giving rather than the gift itself. For the Japanese, gifts are not just a way of showing appreciation, but also a sign of respect, generosity, and friendliness between people. Gift exchange is common through during common celebrations like birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations or housewarmings. There are also many other occasions when people expect to give and receive small gifts.

Even though people compare Mothering Sunday in the UK to Mother’s Day in US, it is actually quite a different holiday. The two holidays have no historical connection and people celebrate them on different dates. These two festivals do have one main thing in common: they celebrate the most important women in our lives, our dear mothers. But that was not always the case. Originally, daughters who worked far from home had Mothering Sunday in UK as a day off to visit family and “mother” church. Today, it is a day for all children to show appreciation for their mothers and give them flowers, cards, and heartfelt Mother’s Day gifts.
When the spring’s warmth comes to Japan, it is also time for one of its most beautiful traditional holidays: Hinamatsuri.

It’s hard to disagree that New Year is the perfect time for a fresh start. It’s that time of year when we are all motivated to zero in on personal goals and shake the things up in all aspects of life. But unfortunately, according to the Statistic Brain Research Institute, less than 10% of people actually keep their New Year resolutions. We often set goals which are either too ambitious or too restrictive to maintain in the long term. These unrealistic plans are very hard to stick with throughout the year and most of them don’t last more than a month. Another problem is that in pursuit of fulfilling our New Year resolutions we often forget the ultimate goal: our personal happiness. Here to help you is our guide to how to be happier in the New Year.
