Pixel Bug Weekend--Haruka' s Shichi Go San


Haruka just had her Shichi Go San a day of prayer for healthy growth of young children. Shichi Go San is a festival for girls ages three and seven and festival for boys ages three and five. It is a big milestone for kids in Japan. Haruka inherited her kimono from her sissy Wakaba and mine was borrowed from my Mother-In- Law. The slippers, tabi ( sock-like foot covering ), obi ( sash ) and other items was bought during Wakaba' s first Shichi-Go-San. I was ready with my formal wear but it was my MIL who asked me to wear the Kimono on Haruka' s day. Haruka' s day started at 8 A.M. ( I was already finished at that time with my Kimono on ) at a beauty salon where she had her hair done in the traditional style, complete with hair ornaments. We don' t have prestigous temples here and went to a shrine at the neighborhood instead and pray for good health and prosperity. And after that we went to a Photo Studio for some photo shoot and family portraits and I'm very proud of Haruka smiling most of the time throughout the photo shoot and Wakaba as well. We' re very excited to see the photos!!

First stop---beauty salon. Haruka stayed quiet and still while letting her hair done. Good girl!!
Haruka went into the Kimono changing room where she was wrapped and trussed all over!!
She stood still and very obedient to every instructions while dressing her in the changing room

Me too!!
Smile Haruka, smile-- it' s your day!!
