New Year's Day, in Japan, is a festival of endings, beginnings, and dreams.

Overview Edit

Hsien Modifier
This three day celebration at the New Year is a celebration of what has been, will be, and is recognized as the "birthday" for all adults. One's age is dictated by the number of New Years one has seen and only children receive individual birthdays in Japan. Many people visit shrines at this time as well as attempt to pay off debts. January third is considered the night of "First Dream" and the people believe that the dreams they experience on this night are prophetic. The sheer excitement and energy generated by this celebration creates immense amounts of Yugen.

Fortunes Edit

As a Winter festival, New Year's Day could give a fortune to a Shui Tan I Chih. It is also auspicious for any sort of magics that try to pierce the veil of time. Magics of the Hsien-jin could be more effective on this day per storyteller approval. Hsien-tsu magics would get a fortune on their personal birthdays.
