Hello everyone!It's Hinamatsuri again- or Japanese Girls' Day. I am celebrating the holiday with my friends Hanabi and Zoya Yumiko.
This is Hanabi, but she likes to be called Abi. She alternates between living in Japan and New York City. I'm glad she's here this year!
And here's Zoya Yumiko! She has a really cute set of dolls especially for the holiday. This year, she found a second set and gave the second set to me! Now I will always be able to celebrate the holiday with my friends! Thank you Zoya!
The dolls come in this special red and gold box. As you can see, the set is Hello Kitty themed! So cute, right?
All the pieces fit together nicely into little compartments. I love looking at them!
We carefully took all the pieces out of the box. Hanabi kindly folded the backdrop accordion-style for me. Zoya checked to make sure that nothing rolled onto the floor- the pieces are very tiny.
Here are the hina ningyo all set up! Aren't the little kitty emperor and empress adorable? I'm so happy Zoya Yumiko gave me this set!
Happy Hinamatsuri! Thank you for celebrating with me. Have you ever celebrated Hinamatsuri or any other Japanese holiday? What did you do?
