Ōmisoka or ōtsugomori is a Japanese traditional celebration on the last day of the year. Traditionally, important activities for the concluding year and day were completed in order to start the new year fresh. Some of these include house cleaning, repaying debts, purification, and bathing so the final hours of the year could be spent relaxing. Recently, families and friends often gather for parties, or even more recently to watch large mixed martial arts cards. This custom has its roots in the ancient Japanese culture surrounding toshigamisama or toshitokusama, which revolved around the practice of showing reverence toward the gods of the current and upcoming years.
