The transition to a new year is a time to voice our hopes and desires for the future in the form of resolutions, wishes, and other forms of stating our intentions going forward, at least for the next twelve months. The Japanese express their desires with kakizome, the ritualized first calligraphy writing of the year. Kakizome, which translates to "first writing," takes place within the first few days of the year, Kakizome is about positive wishes for the New Year. It is a reflective practice based on the belief that practicing one kanji over and over helps the writer focus on the hoped-for theme. If there is ever a time that stating such intentions is vital, 2021 is surely the year.

As we cannot gather this year, the Folk Arts Program at Arts Mid-Hudson and the Mid-Hudson Japanese Community Association offer Shin-nen Gyoji: Japanese arts and culture for the New Year a short video featuring the practice of Kakizome and other Japanese traditional arts including origami (paper folding), and sumi-e (ink wash painting), and the preparation of mochi and ozoni for New Year’s meals.
