Setsubun. February 3rd is the day we throw roasted soy beans out the doors and windows and say, “oni wa soto!” (demons be gone!), and throw beans inside and say, “fuku wa uchi!” (fortune come in!). Then you collect and eat the number of beans that represents your age.

  
Recently people just throw little packets of beans inside the house because cleaning up all the beans can be a bit troublesome. it’s more fun to throw the beans!
