We received a special package from our family in Japan today. It is our Hina-Ningyo set - a set of beautiful Japanese dolls that we will display until March 3. Our set is pictured at the left. Its beautiful! We couldn't believe it made the whole trip and was still in great condition.

March 3 is a holiday in Japan called Hina Matsuri. It is also called Girl Day and is a day that Japanese families with young daughters celebrate to ensure their daughter's future happiness.

I'm not sure what all the different elements symbolize yet. I know the blossoms symbolize a future happy marriage for our daughter. The two dolls represent the emporer and emporess in beautiful costumes.

Of course, one of the best parts is that we get to drink sweet sake and eat one of my favoriate dishes, chirashi sushi.
