It is HINAMATSURI today, on March 3rd!

Hinamatsuri is a festival for girls to grow up healthy and well.

Traditionally on Hinamatsuri day, if you have a girl in your family, you should decorate a room in your home with dolls and you all eat sushi and some sweets with your family.

This festival came from ancient China in the Heian period in Japan which is from 794 to 1185.

We have Kodomo no hi which is boy’s day in May as well.
