March 3rd… Girl’s Day
Also called Momo-no-Sekku (Peach Blossom Festival), Hinamatsuri is an event to pray for and celebrate the growth and happiness of girls.
Various areas have their own traditional doll decorations and celebration customs. The emperor and empress dolls are placed to the left and right respectively but some parts of the Kansai region ornament the opponent way.
Display hina dolls 10 days before March 3 and take them down right away, since leaving them out after the celebration is said to lead to a late marriage for the daughter.
