Each day i draw what "special day" it is in Japan on our fridge.
Here's the last 4 days.
1/8 : earphone day -- the numbers for 1 and 8 in japanese can be read "i" and "ya" which comes together to sound like ear..
1/9 : witty day -- the character "ikyuu kun" is associated with wit and often used to depict it
1/10 : emergency call day -- the emergency number in japan is 110
1/11 : coming of age day -- people who turn 20 this year celebrate (and hear a speech while wearing kimono)
