On 31th December, Japanese people have soba noodles in midnight. The meaning of this habit is that we cut a series of bad luck of the year off so that bad luck will not last to the next year.
In the past people stick on soba noodles but these days because of the allergic problems, more people eat different noodles like udon, ramen or somen etc.
I made Kimch nabe(hot pot) with harusame(Chinese bean noodles).
Bean noodles are very good with Asian foods. Also it is famous as a diet friendly ingredient. I hope I cut bad luck of last year off and will have a happy year!
Is their any cultural habits around new year in your region?
