#11 - Doll's Festival for Girls

Doll's Festival for girls is held on the 3rd of March. We, Japanese, display a set of hina dolls and pray for the sound growth of girls in the family. We also offer sweet mild sake and diamond-shaped rice cake on the doll's stand↓

Hina dolls should be put away immediately after the 3rd of March, otherwise the girl, we believe, will have trouble getting married! Amazing custom, isn't it??
