【岩座】歳神様とお正月のこと ーしめ縄 飾りー

【岩座】歳神様とお正月のこと ーしめ縄 飾りー


On New Year's Day, it is said that Toshigami will appear as the sun rises.

Its origin is the god of Shinto "Ya million" and is said to be the spirit of its ancestors who protect the house from evil.

Are you ready to welcome the old God and welcome the new year with a refreshing feeling?


What is Toshi God (Year God)?


On the New Year's Eve, on the eve of New Year's Eve, I
will lead each ancestor from Eho (Eho), the year, to visit each family,

He is said to be a god who spends one year of health and happiness with his family.


Also called "New Year's Day" and "New Year's Day", it is an ancient Japanese god who will return again around the New Year's Day (January 15, Lunar New Year).


There is a theory that Toshigami is the “god of the field” that controls agriculture, and that it is the spirit of the ancestors.

"Oshinoshigami", which appears in Japanese mythology, is used for this.


Rice and cereals make it fertile (Minoru) It is said that they watch over people as the god of rice, "the grain god."


The New Year's God is said to be able to visit each house twice a year during the New Year and Obon periods, which are outside the busy season.

On the New Year's Day, we offer "Okamochi" and decorate with "Kadomatsu" and "New Year decorations".

This is also called a "mark" for the deity and the ancestors who can return. 



Housecleaning

In order to invite Toshigami, we will start cleaning the house and the goddess from December 13th, "Beginning of the Day" .

The roots of general cleaning are soot scraping performed at shrines and other places.




In the past, there was a hearth and a furnace inside the house, and the inside of the house was full of soot, so removing soot was also a symbol of cleaning.

The word paying also means purifying.




The kitchen , as well as the floor, the living room, the shrine shelves and the altar, was carefully cleaned.

It is thought that if the kitchen is dirty, the vitality of the house will be reduced and the luck of the house will escape .

It is said that there is a furnace god in the kitchen. Similarly, the water around the bathroom and toilet has also been carefully monitored.




It has long been said that cleaning is a good thing, but the best thing is cleaning.

It is said that when you clean every corner, the year God will give you many fortunes.


Once the house is cleansed, it is time for the New Year's decoration.

A typical decoration for the New Year is a shime rope.
