Children's Day in Japan

May 5th might be Cinco de Mayo here in the states but did you know that in Japan May 5th is Children's Day?

Celebrating the elderly or the time-wisened individuals is commonplace in Japan but they don't forget about the kids.

This is a great day to celebrate with banners, prizes and candy.

I think we should lobby for a Children's Day here in the states.

What do you think?

May 5th is Children's Day here in Korea too! I did an article about it on an online magazine. I'll have to look for that!

Yep, I think we should have one too. To honor and pay tribute to the children of abuse.

I love the idea of a Children's Day. We have days for everything else.

Children's Day??? Oh, yes. I think we call it "Christmas."

Grace and Peace,

Jean - I never thought of it that way 'cuz Christmas is so much fun for me - of course I'm just a big kid.

My husband's parents told him when he was a kid, "Every day is children's day." And they had HUGE Christmases at their house, even with six kids and a modest income.
