Nengajyo
New Year's is a very special holiday in Japan - it's probably the biggest item on the calendar of annual events. There used to be a custom of calling on relatives, neighbors, and those who bestowed kindness over the preceding year during the first few days of the new year. They send a lot of special postcards called nengajo that are delivered on New Year's Day. Even people who hardly ever send letters make an effort to send out New Year's cards. Cards are not sent to people who have had some misfortune in the previous year, such as a death in the family.

Cards are commonly received during the first week of the new year. To keep them from being delivered early, post offices around Japan will hold all Nengajyo cards postmarked in December until they can be properly delivered on January 1st.
