Shichi-Go-San/七五三

12 Nov

Next Monday, November 15th, is しちごさん (shichi-go-san), a holiday in Japan that celebrates 7, 5, and 3-year olds. Children get dressed up and visit a shrine with their parents. You can read more about the holiday on Wikipedia or Kids Web Japan.

Neither of my kids are 3, 5, or 7, so I am not sure if I will do anything to celebrate the holiday. But if you want to do something, here is a coloring page, and a printable craft- a pencil holder.

What do you think? どうおもう?
