Nenga-jo are post cards that are used for New Year’s greetings. New Year’s cards generally have a set phrase such as Akemashite omedeto gozaimasu, Kinga shinnen, or Geishun, all of which mean A Happy New Year. In addition, there is also recent news or a brief New Year’s resolution. New Year’s cards also often have a picture of the eto of the New Year. The eto is the animal for the New Year that is designated by the junishi calendar. The junishi are the twelve signs of the Chines zodiac that are mainly used in reference to the year.
