In Japan on February 3rd each year there is a festival in all homes to banish bad luck
and to welcome good luck into your homes.
Teacher brought in the masks and the soya beans so we could try to banish bad luck from our classroom and to welcome in some good luck for 2014.
Each person had some beans and they had to throw them at the bad guys shouting
"bad luck out" and then throw some into the class shouting "good luck in".
Bad luck out and good luck in.
Here are the masks and the beans that we used today.
It is a lot of fun learning about traditions from other cultures.
