Have a Blessed New Year in 2010!

Dearest friends of Blackcabbit,

Here is an e-Card for you! This is the first time I learn to create a Japanese New Year card (Nengajo / 年賀状). Hope you will like it! (Click on the link if you want to find out more about a Nengajo.)

2010 Nengajo

Here are the translations… ^_^

 (とら/いん) – Year of Tiger
[Pronounced as “Tora” or “In”]

Geishun (迎春) is one of the many Japanese expressions for “Happy New Year”.

Main Text:
This is our first New Year celebration as a married couple.
Soon with a new family member,
our whole year ahead will become a lively and bustling one.
Together as a family, we hope for your continued favor this year.

Heisei Nijuninen(平成22年) – Current Japan Era
/ Japanese way of saying Year 2010

Gantan(元旦)means the morning of first January.

2009 has been a really blessed year for me and I believe God will continue to bless 2010 and many more years to come! I pray that your 2010 will be filled with so much joy, laughter, peace, health, and most of all… may all your dreams come true!
