Fukuwarai (福笑い?), or in English, "Lucky Laugh", is a Japanese game played around New Year's ("Oshogatsu"). The game is usually played by children, but adults may sometimes play also. The game is similar to that of Pin the Tail on the Donkey, whereby the players pin different parts of the face (such as the eyes, eyebrows, nose and mouth) onto a blank face and laugh at the humorous results.
