Setsubun (February 3 or 4): the day before the beginning of spring according to the lunisolar calendar. On the evening of this day, people open the doors of their houses and drive the demons (i.e., bad luck) out of their homes and gardens by throwing handfuls of beans and shouting, "Demons out! Good luck in!"
