Although not a national holiday, the meaning of Hinamatsuri is to celebrate girls’ happiness, in Japan and the United States. Grandmother to mother, mother to daughter, the wish for a daughter’s happiness is both valued and treasured, and still celebrated in this spirit.
Sakura received her dolls from Daddy’s Uncle Tomohei in Japan and they are SO beautiful, if I had been able, I probably would have chosen the same set. Dean and I had not taken all of the pieces out until we displayed it on Saturday, so it was exciting to see everything put together. We will leave it out until Baa-chan and Jii-chan arrive March 6th so they can see everything displayed.
