3th of March in Japan is a Doll's Day (Doll Festival - Hina-matsuri) known also as a Girl's Day. This day is a celebration of femininity and being a girl.
During this festival they display on a big platforms covered with a red carpet a set of ornamental dolls representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period. It looks very beautiful (you can see it here) and though I spend most of my childhood years in Europe and, I have to admit that, I have never seen this display at my mother's house I feel like this festival is a part of my life. I don't know why. Maybe because my mother was reading me japanese myths every night when I was a child.
Happy Doll's Day girls!
From now on I also would love to write after my every editorial mashup's post details about these editorials to show my respect to the people who work hard every day to inspire us. And I pray that no more haters will provoke talented and inspiring people to say things which they would never say. You know how it is when you are angry? You say things which you would never ever say in life. And you regret it but sometimes it's too late.
