Did you have a good dream?

A happy new year. I wish this year would be full of joy and happiness and even better than last year. Well, we know everything goes well if the first action of it is successful. Japanese superstition says  several dream that you have on new year day would bring a good ruck. The best one is Mount Fuji, the second  is an eagle and the third is an eggplant. Japanese words have “Buji (無事)” which means safety. The dream appears Mount Fuji also means “Buji” throughout a year. An eagle is a symbol of intelligence and power in Japan. Therefore an eagle in dream means you would have great knowledge and achieve success. We say an eggplant in Japanese, “Nasu” and it also means “accomplish”. Additionally, people believe that a dream of  eggplants would promise your good health.
