Happy Girls’ Day 2014

3 03 2014

March 3rd is the Girls’ Day in Japan.  It is not a national holiday as opposed to the Children’s Day (which is actually the designated Boys’ Day) on May 5th being a public holiday.

I neglected to put out my dolls this year and it’s too late to put them out now.  I can see my mother frowning.  They are beautiful and I really should have put them out.

My “hina” dolls:

And my hanging scroll hina:

I did have a “hinamatsuri” of sort at my friend’s.

I brought this as a gift.  An apple from Aomori designed especially for the occasion.
