Tanabata (Star Festival)
Today, July 7, is the Star Festival which is one of the important event in Japan. Originally, this festival bases on the Chinese legend of two stars; Altair and Vega. Vega, a weaving girl, and Altair, a cowherd boy, they are both hard-working. However, once they got seeing each other, tehy discontinued working. This led to lose the temper of Vega's father... Due to it, he prohibited them from meeting-up by separating by the Milky way. After that, they reformed thier mind and decided to work hard again! It succeeded in changing father's mind and getting together again! It was just once a year, though.. From that story, people began to celebrate their reunion by decorating the bamboo branches with some paper stripes and ornaments. On top of that, it is believed that the wish comes true if you write it on the paper stripes ang hang it on the bamboo. So now, let's get some pens and papers to make your hope come true!
