Bonenkai - End of the Year Party

Bonenkai, which literally means "forget the year gathering", is a party held at the end of the year to forget the troubles of the past year and look forward to a great new year. Bonenkai is most commonly held within companies but many friends get together as well and celebrate. There is no specific date for Bonenkai but is usually held in December. Some companies may choose to have company parties at the office while others may go to an izakaya, Japanese pub, to celebrate. Bonenkai usually involves large amounts of drinking and is a time for fun and getting to know your bosses and coworkers on a more casual level. A bonenkai can last as long as one wants, and many parties usually last several rounds.
