Happy Hina Matsuri
« on: March 03, 2009, 05:14:21 AM »
Hey! Happy Hina Matsuri, everybody! Oh Dear Lord, he's NOT gonna do THIS with EVERY flippin' holiday on the Japanese calendar, is he??
 
March 3rd is "Girls' Day" or "Doll Festival" (and used to be Festival of Peach Blossoms) in Japan.

UruseiYatsura references it: in the manga, it's the chapter when Ten first shows up, and in the anime, it's Ran's first appearence.

What's White Day?

Does it have something to do with the color white?

Actually, I was concentrating on Golden Week, but now that you've mentioned it ....  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D  (oh, snap)

So I guess this is the day where if I were Japanese I would have to put a girly kimono? I'm loyal to my baggy jeans! xD

Perhaps you could wear your baggy jeans like hakama? Might work ...! :bulp:

and, finally ...

Kimono on White day? Why? Those that aren't familiar with Valentine's day and White day in Japan, here's a brief overview. On Valentine's day, girls are expected to give the boys they like chocolate (we'll not get into giri chocolate and the intricacies of the matter). We all know this, right? White day takes place one month later, on March 14th, and is basically the same thing but the other way around. Usually though, girls expect the guys to get them presents instead of chocolate.

I'd have thought everyone in here would watch enough anime (or read enough manga, in cases like mine) to know about White day.

I didn't mean to imply that kimono were to-be-worn on Howaito De, although I can see how that might be inferred from the order in which I answered the replies in my last post. My apologies for any misunderstanding.

I did, it's just that I know it as "Reverse-Valentine's Day" because the guys who wrote the english script for one of my video games are stupid.
