I don't actually know if this is an Aikido wide thing .... I wanted to see if any of you out there have any simliar experiences in regards to new years day practice!
The dojo I go to does the same thing -- start practice at 11:30 and end at 12:30; we stop just before midnight, meditate through the stroke of midnight, and finish up the new year. I went last year and this year and enjoyed it. In fact, I was going to post a query to ask how this got started.
