F is for girls Festival


Today's Mrs.matlock's class learning about alphabet F

F is for Festival  
 I'll describe one of the most traditional Festival in Japan.
It is Hinamatsuri or Momo no sekku. Peach flower is blooming

.
The Japanese Doll Festival ( Hina-matsuri in japanese), or Girls' Day, is held on March 3 .Platforms covered with a red carpet are used to display a set of ornamental dolls  representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period


Each family mostly celebrate of the girls birth at home.  Granparents ordinally present  hina dolls set for their granddaughters.


So I'll post of my Hinamatsuri around at home next week:)
And  see you Next Thursday for class!!

Mami :-)
