Even though I am yonsei, I still eat traditional Japanese New Year food like ozoni. smile

Must have my good luck soup with mochi and mizuna.

Here's an interesting factoid about mochi: About 14 people die each year from eating mochi. Most of them are elderly and they choke.

Actually, yes. If you can find a Death Note, write down "<Own Name> dies peacefully and painlessly while sleeping" or something. smile

What is a Death Note? How can I find one?

Anyway, better to focus on a good life than a good death.

Ah, it's a notebook from a popular manga series of the same name. If you have a Death Note, you can control people's deaths by writing their names and the circumstances of their deaths on it. They will die the way you describe it in the book.


If such a book really exists in real life...

But there is such a book. It is called the Book of Life and we wrote on our Death Note before we came to earth.
