Hina Matsuri Girls' Day Celebration

This is a picture of my daughter and I enjoying girl's day. Dressing up in traditional kimonos, eating mochi with red bean, and of course the dolls...

In Hawaii and in many other places, Hina Matsuri or Girls' Day is celebrated on March 3 by many Japanese families.The little girls are given a doll, but not just any doll, a ceremonial doll, that is usually pretty expensive and is handed down from generation to generation. Many come in glass boxes to be displayed rather than to be played with. In our home it's a fun day to celebrate my daughter and this special gift that God has given to us! Aren't little girls the best? Oh, and don't worry, all of those precious little boys out there have their own special day too coming up.
