I hope you all will have a wonderful New Year with your family♪
As I wished to link this my another first bird to bird memes. Let me say early new year greeting. I'll link this post to Eileen's "Saturday's critters", and Anni's "id-rather-b birdin" in the morning of January 1st (Japan time).
Yellow bunting Oriental Green Finch *
This is also my first bird found on the tree in front of my house. So sorry for not clear picture :-)
* Bells on New Year’s Eve” *
In Buddhist beliefs, humans are born with 108 worldly desires which are removed when the temple toll bell 108 times. TV program let us hear the bell from the shrine when the clock hit the Jan.1st to be able to welcome New Year with a pure mind and pray the peaceful New Year. I remember being able to stay up around 1:30 on New Year morning when young and had happy time with family and relatives :-)
Wishing you will have a wonderful Year End and New Year with your family♪
