New Year’s Paper Fortune (おみくじ) for Your Club

Leave a comment

New Year’s is a big holiday in Japan. People sometimes wear traditional robes and go to the shrines to pray for a year of good luck. At the shrines, people usually get a paper fortune, or omikuji (おみくじ). These fortunes tell the person if they will have good or bad luck during the year along with some warnings or predictions.

New Years Fortune ThumbFor your club meeting, you can have members pull their own paper fortune. You can download the PDF or Word document. Each fortune is different.

What happens if you pull a fortune that has bad luck? You fold it and tie it to a tree branch. This will ensure that the bad luck won’t come near you.
