That's the traditional New Year greeting in Japanese. In Japan, all of the little kids go around to the adults saying "Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu!" and the adults reciprocate by handing out envelopes stuffed with cash.

I don't have any cash for you, but watch for some giveaways in the next couple of weeks. I'm going to hand out my used copies of various bike books, and I might have a couple of other goodies as well.

Happy New Years, all, and may your bike routes always be free and open to access.

Let me through!

Wait, you said ALL the adults? So everyone on the streets carries a wad of envelopes filled with cash for the hundreds of kids running around shouting "Akemashite omedetou gozaimasu"?

Haha, kidding. But that would be weird. And I would move myself to Japan and adopt some kid-like avatar.
 
Okay, Steve, all of the adults in the immediate family. But we sure tried to see how far we could extend that :-)
