Japanese Mask Craft at Carver Library, Thursday February 1st @ 4:00 pm
Join us as we do a craft for the Japanese festival of Setubun
, which means "division of seasons," and is considered as the last day of winter. This year, it's February 3rd. The common ritual is to throw roasted beans around one’s house. People are supposed to say “devils out, happinesses in” when they throw the beans. Many families with kids do this with one member (usually a parent) wear the devil mask, pretending s/he is the devil, so that other family members throw beans at the devil to make it go away. The program, hosted by the Wake Forest Museum of Anthroplogy, takes place Thursday, February 1st at 4:00 pm and all ages are welcome to attend!
