一富士二鷹三茄子

今年の初夢は何でしたか。
ことしの はつゆめは なんでしたか。

Do you know the saying: 一富士二鷹三茄子?

初夢(はつゆめ) is a person’s first dream in the New Year and there is an old saying of 一富士二鷹三茄子(いちふじ にたか さんなすび). That is “first Mt. Fuji, second, a hawk, third an eggplant.” This is the order of the three objects that are traditionally believed to bring good luck if they appear in the first dream of the New Year. So did you dream of any of the three?

I would personally feel puzzled if I had dreamed of an eggplant!

Please write what was in your first dream of the year in the comment section!
