Happy Children’s Day!

In Japan, we celebrate Children’s Day on the 5th of May every year. Traditionally, the Japanese celebrated boys’ good health and longevity, wishing for them a life of achievement (girls have their own special day on March 3). It is said to have originated from a Chinese legend: Only the carp that can swim up the Yellow River can become a dragon. Children’s Day is celebrated with decorations of huge fabric koi (carp) flags, known as Koi Nobori.

In Russia it’s 1st June to celebrates Children’s Day. Here in our small town, usually, all parents with children gather in the recreation park, ride attractions, eat cotton candy… If it’s not a rainy day of course :)
