The namahage’s purpose was to admonish laggards who sit around the fire idly doing nothing useful. One of the refrains used by the namahage in the olden days was „Blisters peeled yet? Thus „Fire rash peeling“ is generally believed to be the derivation of the name namahage. Some of the namahage’s other spoken lines of old were „Knife whetted yet?
The knife apparently signified the instrument to peel the blisters, and it was customary to have azuki gruel on the „Little New Year“. Although the namahage are nowadays conceived of as a type of oni or ogre, it was originally a custom where youngsters impersonated the kami who made visitations during the New Year’s season. Thus it is a kind of toshigami. The namahage would typically receive mochi from the households they visited, but newlywed couples were supposed to play host to them in full formal attire and offer them sake and food.
