Traditions linked to happiness?

Ever heard about naked festival?

It happens in the middle of the night where Japanese men strip down and wear only a diaper.

Why?

They compete to get sticks, which is thrown by the priests. These sticks if collected are considered lucky for the man, and he could have a flourishing year ahead.

The man who finally gets to put the sticks into a wooden box of rice gets to be called the "lucky man."

Festivities add glamor to our lives. This one is straightforward, and nothing needs to be bought except for a diaper.

Conclusion

Some Traditions sure are funny. But, anything that makes a man look forward to a great year.

Mantra for today: Happiness is short lived so, enjoy your present and do not wait up for any festival.
