Happy Tanabata! 2013

7 Jul


I’ll be honest, Tanabata usually takes a back seat to the 4th of July at our house. By the time we celebrate Independence Day by going to the beach, BBQ’s, and late-night fireworks, I don’t even want to think about celebrating another holiday 3 days later. How about you? How do you celebrate Tanabata?

So I was very grateful when my daughter made some Tanabata decorations at Japanese School yesterday.



My daughter’s Tanabata wish: “にじがみたい” (I want to see a rainbow).



Take a moment today to make a tanabata wish!

Search my site for “Tanabata” for more on this Japanese summer holiday!
