From SOTOZEN-NET:
The week between December 1st and 8th is called Rohatsu sesshin, which is a whole week of intensive zazen. The custom has its roots in the Buddha’s own attainment of enlightenment after a week of meditation.
 Commemorating the Awakening of Shakyamuni Buddha (Jodo-e)

December 8th is the day we commemorate Shakyamuni Buddha’s realization of the Way. Following many years of difficult ascetic practice, Shakyamuni sat in zazen beneath the Bodhi tree. At dawn on December 8th, Shakyamuni saw the morning star and realizing awakening, he then became Shakyamuni Buddha. 

The event is finished.
