March 3rd is observed as a Girl's Festival. It is also called as “Hinamatsuri (Doll’s Festival)” and “Momo no Sekku (Peach Festival)” .
We customarily display hina dolls, drink shirozake (sweet white drink made from rice), and eat hinaarare (sweet rice crackers) to pray for the happiness and healthy growth of family girls.
I am not a girl anymore, but I toast both former and the present girls with a cup of tea. Happy Girls Festival!
