Daruma Doll Get!

I'd seen these daruma dolls in Japan at temples but never really bothered ... however, nothing is better at bringing these things to my immediate attention then popular media. Featured with some regularity on Nichijou (especially the one with drawn-on sunglasses), they are symbols of good luck and perseverance.

Here I got one today while out shopping. I think the tradition is to burn them at the end of the year and get a new one. Hopefully I get some use out of this one before it has to go :)
