It is Hina Matsuri today 🎎
Hina Matsuri is the Japanese name for Girls’ Day or the Doll’s Festival, which is held on the third of March.
Families with girls display dolls in their home to pray for healthy growth and happiness for young girls.
People began displaying dolls in the Edo period. The dolls depict the imperial court. They are dressed in beautiful ancient court costumes.
Long time ago, people threw paper dolls into rivers and in the sea to drive away evil spirits with them.
We eat traditional dishes like Chirashi-sushi, clam soup, diamond-shaped rice cakes, and sweet rice crackers on Hina Matsuri.
