Star festival☆7th July
Posted by: kayoko
What is "Tanabata"?
Tanabata (meaning "Evening of the seventh") is a Japanese star festival, derived
from the Chinese star festival.
It celebrates the meeting of Orihime (Vega) and Hikoboshi (Altair).
The Milky Way, a river made from stars that crosses the sky,
separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year
on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar.
Since the stars come out at night, the celebration is held at night.
We will see a lots of decorations in many places for this festival or we decorate
bamboo with colorful paper and also hung a 'tanzaku' (written one's wish)
Then, we will have a party......☆☆☆
