ばあばの77回目の誕生日

今日はうちのおばあちゃんの77回目の誕生日。
日本ではこれを「喜寿」といって特別にお祝いしていました。
なんで「喜寿」かっていうのは、
喜びという字の草体が七十七と読めることから
77歳の誕生日をお祝いすることをさすようになったのだそうです。

ちなみに61歳が還暦、70歳が古希、80歳が傘寿、88歳が米寿、90歳は卒寿、99歳が白寿、そして100歳が紀寿、あともいくつかあるみたいだけどこれくらいがまあ有名どころかと。あとはオレもよくわかりませーーーん。

61歳のころはオレがまだ8歳とかなんで、何がなんだか知りもしないし
まさかばあちゃんにオレが誕生日に何かしようなんて・・・
そのころはばあちゃんにはオレはいつも
「肩たたき券」なるものをあげてましたw
肩を100回たたいてあげる券、とかw
でもいつもその券は有効に活用されなかったそうです、あげるくせに
オレは嫌がっていたらしいw なんて最悪な孫だったんでしょうか。

ともかく。
今回は、ちゃんと祝いのために帰省までしてみました。
オレのイメージで還暦とか喜寿のお祝いって
親戚とかいっぱい呼んでやるものだと・・・
でも多分まるちゃんとかサザエさんの見すぎみたいでした。
今日は実に平和に家族で楽しく一日外へも出ずに過ごしました。
それはそれで、いいもんなんかもな、と思いました。
最近ばあちゃんひざが痛いって言ってるし。

とまあそんなこんなで
うちのばあばは、77歳になって孫から携帯をリニューアルしてもらい
今度の携帯はついに写メもとれるように!!!
メールもできるし写メも撮れるし、これでうちのおばあは怖いものなしですw

おばあおめでとうねーーー!!!w

it was 77th Bday of my grandmother today.
we call this special Bday as "Ki-Ju".
the chinese character for the "Ki" is written with "seven" "ten" and "seven"
in the style of "So-sho" (one of the special way of carigraphying)
so old ppl decided to call 77th Bday as "Ki-Ju".
"Ju" is the word for something very happy and cerebrating.

we also have lots more like this.
For 60th Bday "Kanreki", 70th Bday "Koki" ......
recently young ppl dont know about these,
and ppl do not practice these so often.

when i was young,
i used to give granma "service tickets".
she could ask me to do some stretching for her with those tickets.
on the tickets, i usually wrote "100 times of hitting shoulder"
or something like this.
my granma later told me that those tickets were very much useless
since i often refused of her using the tickets. lol

since i came to APU,
i havent cerebrated my granma's Bday,
so I decided to go back tohometown and spent her Bday together at home.
my image of "Ki-Ju" was something really big,
such as asking our relatives and going to the hotel,
having big big party with lots lots foods and drinks.
but maybe that image was too much influenced by some
media such as animation "Sazae-san" "Chibi-Maruko".....
anyway,
it was still really nice spending time with family at home.
we had a lot of good food which my mom made by herself.

and my granma got new cell phone from her grandsons
which was one of her wish to have a cell phone with camera.
now she could take a photo of her grand grand daughter with
her phone and send it to her frds!!!

happy Bday great granma and wish you happy all the time for ever!!!
