How are you?
Hope you’re all fine as always : )!
It’s soon going to be July 7th… the TANABATA day : )
Tanabata is an event related to the STARS.
It is based on a story that only once a year, Hikoboshi and Orihime, the two lovers, would be allowed to meet each other at the shores of the heavenly river.
And that DAY they can meet each other is – July 7th.
Hikoboshi and Orihime were husband and wife.
They were so deeply in love with each other and started to NOT do their job/work.
That is a problem. Right?
So as a punishment, they were separated and only allowed to meet one once a year.
On the night of 7th July of every year, people write their wishes on colorful paper sheets and hang them on bamboo leaves.
That is how the TANABATA came a celebration in Japan !
(*Although there might be various theories.)
Have a sweet TANABATA night : )!
