Hinamatsuri Tea

Hinamatsuri (Doll's Festival) is a special day in Japan when parent's pray for their daughter's growth and happiness, the girl's dress up in kimonos, dolls are displayed, and special treats are enjoyed.

EJ and I read about this holiday together in "Japanese Celebrations" a new favorite of hers.

And then celebrated it together over tea and sakura-mochi.

EJ enjoyed the cherry blossom treat while I read the book.

Maybe next year she will be in a kimono and we will have some dolls on display.
