New Year’s. Redo, Please

It’s the first week of 2011 and you’re already not living up to your New Year’s resolutions. The treadmill is still a clothes rack, that expensive journal you bought yourself for Christmas is still blank, and you are still living the same boring, uneventful life you were a week ago. There’s good news, though. You have a second chance to celebrate New Year’s — sober this time — and start fresh all over again. Oshogatsu is the traditional Japanese New Year celebration, and, for the past 34 years, the Morikami Museum and Japanese Gardens in Delray Beach has been bringing it to South Florida. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, you can take part in a traditional tea ceremony or learn to make rice cakes. There will be calligraphy, fortunetelling, and even fukuwarai, the Japanese equivalent of pin the tail on the donkey. Morikami is located at 4000 Morikami Park Road in Delray Beach. Admission is $10 for adults or $5 for children. Museum members and children under 3 get in free. Visit, or call 561-495-0233.
Sun., Jan. 9, 10 a.m., 2011
