This year's setsubun (the day before the start of Spring*)'s direction was South South-East. As luck would have it Meg has been learning about directions this year in Social studies so instead of just telling the girls which way to look as they silently ate their humungous sushi rolls we let Meg go to work with the compass and tell us which way South South-East is.
It was a LONG process.
But we got their in the end and Meg was very proud to inform us that the corner of the fridge was exactly the right place to face.
Not the fridge in general.
The corner of the fridge.
Here's to a lucky year ahead!
*Spring has by no means started. Temperatures are still dipping into the double digit minuses and it keeps freaking snowing. Whoever put the beginning of Spring at the start of February was sadistic and evil!
