Hina Matsuri

The Hina Matsuri or Doll Festival or Girl's Festival is celebrated on March 3. On this day, families with girls wish their daughters a successful and happy life. Dolls are displayed in the house together with peach blossoms. The doll festival has its origin in a Chinese custom in which bad fortune is transferred to dolls and then removed by abandoning the doll on a river. On Hina Matsuri, sweet sake is drunken and chirashi sushi is eaten. (Source)


I really really wanted to have this set of dolls. But that thing is very expensive! And how on earth am I going to bring it back to my lupang hinirang? Baka mas mahal pa ang magastos ko sa pagpapadala compared to the price of the commodity itself. But seriously I really want them.

Anyway I didn't know that today is hinamatsuri until I received some goodies from Hayakawa-san. Last year she gave us ladies some hello kitty munchies.


And that's when I realized the logo of Google today. Toinks! Parang wala ako sa Japan hehe

Oyasumi! ^_^

Astig na tradisyon yan ah. Pagkamahal-mahal ng mga dolls na iyan tapos papatinaurin lang sa ilog?

Kung uso dito sa Pinas yan, malamang dagdag pollution yan sa Pasig River. :-P
