Show 276 Saturday 3 February

Watch today’s show at YouTube.

Today is 節分 which means it’s time for 豆まき the bean-throwing festival.
To do 豆まきsomeone has to put on a devil mask.
The mask-wearing ritual starts with attaching rubber bands to the side of the mask and popping the eyes out.
Usually soybeans are used. But if you can’t seem to find the soybeans at the supermarket, peanuts will do.
Throw beans or nuts or whatever at the person wearing the mask and yell 鬼は外。
