what is the meaning of the three bamboo?
Terri,Bamboo is an auspicious plant like pine and plum blossoms. I asked Papa why three bamboo poles. He didn't know. We will research it. It may be like School House Rock said "three is a magic number."Check back at this post.
Annie, I linked over to these pictures from my own post about our experience making kadomatsu. I tried to trackback, but I don't think it worked. Great photos!

Thanks, Kris, for the link to you great photos. I already encorporated it into the post if you don't mind. I'll post later about mochi, glutinous rice as it is sometimes translated. I'm gathering samples, etc. Do be careful eating it. Small bites, please. Children and old people here are advised to be careful. It can be a choking hazard.Annie
