Greetings from Borderless House.
Can you believe it's already been a month since 2024 began? Time sure flies! We've settled back into our daily routines after the holiday season, but today, I'd like to take you back to the New Year's festivities for a moment!
In this blog post, we'll be sharing a recap of our joint New Year's party held on January 27th. It was an eventful day filled with laughter, bonding, and cultural exchange, and we're excited to give you a glimpse of the fun we had.
So, let's dive in and relive the excitement of New Year Party 2024!
We had the pleasure of hosting over 60 former and current residents from all 25 houses in attendance! It was a vibrant mix of nationalities and backgrounds, with everyone eagerly engaging in conversations, sharing stories, and reconnecting with old friends.
Calligraphy Competition, Quiz Time, and Mochi Pounding!
Our first activity was a calligraphy competition, a nod to the traditional Japanese New Year's practice of "kakizome." Instead of setting specific goals for the year, participants were encouraged to express themselves freely through words or illustrations. The creativity and enthusiasm displayed by each team were truly inspiring!
Following the calligraphy competition, we switched gears to a Borderless House-themed quiz. Teams competed against each other, answering questions about our houses, staff members, and various cultural tidbits. It was impressive to see the depth of knowledge and teamwork on display!
And of course, no New Year party would be complete without mochi pounding! Participants gathered around as we prepared fresh mochi using traditional mortars and pestles. The rhythmic pounding and laughter filled the air as everyone worked together to create delicious mochi treats.
As the evening drew to a close, we couldn't help but reflect on the success of the event. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, we were thrilled to see the sense of community and camaraderie that flourished throughout the day. From heartfelt conversations to shared laughter, it was a celebration to remember.
Embracing the Future: Building on Memories, Cultivating Community
Looking ahead, we're excited to continue fostering connections and creating memorable experiences for our residents. Be sure to stay tuned for future events, as there's plenty more fun to come!
Thank you to everyone who joined us for the New Year Party 2024. Here's to another year of friendship, growth, and unforgettable moments at Borderless House Tokyo!
