Feliz 2017! / Happy 2017!

Olá, queridos leitores!
Espero que todos tenham celebrado a passagem do ano a contento.
Quero registrar a passagem do ano com esta foto da minha mãe fazendo os tradicionais mochis de ano novo.
Atualmente ela tem 74 anos e acordou cedo para fazê-los. A alegria e a longevidade dela sempre me espantam. Neste ponto ela é uma inspiração para mim, não só no ano novo mas no todo.

Hello dear readers!
I hope that all of you have celebrated the New Year at your hearts content.
I want to get registered this picture with my mother making the traditional New Year mochis.
She is 74 years old now and she woke up early to make them. 
Her joy and longevity always astound me. In this she is a inspiration for me, not only in the New Year, but all year long.

  1. Happy 2017 to you too! Wish I could try one of these - is it a Korean tradition? And yes, mothers - how they do it I'll never know but they do indeed get up early or stay up late to see to the holiday foods, smiling and loving us and always a model for how to live our lives. May your mother live many more joyful years. :-)

  2. Hi Sheila, thanks for writing!
    Mochis are a Japanese tradition, I don't know if Korean people observe it too. But I have seen my mother doing these rice balls since I was a child as a signal of the beginning of the year. Yes, mothers are the base of our civilization... doing complicated food that take days to be made stubbornly keep old traditions. Keeping old familiar traditions is a good way to begin the year.
    Thanks again!

  3. Your mom looks so happy making those mochis! Happy New Year Lucia!!
