The Old Photos: Hinamatsuri

Today is Hinamatsuri (雛祭り) in Japan!
Hinamatsuri is also known as Girl’s Day in English, which doesn’t sound quite as festive. But it’s a special day where families pray for the happiness and health of their young girls.
I personally haven’t celebrated this day in awhile but I remember we did when I was younger. I even found this picture of us kids posing beside a beautiful display of Hinamatsuri dolls!
You’ll notice tradition becomes a bit more casual when you’re living on the other side of the Pacific, as we have both girls and boys in the picture. But a celebration is a celebration and this is how Hinamatsuri in rural Michigan looked like in 1988 (or somewhere around there!) 😀
