Today is a holiday in Japan called Setsubun.
It’s a holiday to celebrate the coming of spring.
Even though it’s still so cold!
It’s kind of a funny holiday.
It involves a tradition of throwing dried soy beans.
Throwing the soybeans represents getting rid of bad luck and welcoming good luck.
As we throw the beans, we say “Oni wa soto, Fuku wa uchi.”
The word “oni” means devil or demon in Japanese.
We are telling it to go away.
