Moon-Viewing (Tsukimi)

Hi dear friends, Tonight is moon viewing in Japan and I would like to introduce and explain about this autumn festival!

Tsukimi or moon-viewing refers to Japanese festivals honoring the autumn moon, a version of the Mid-Autumn Festival. The celebration of the full moon typically takes place on the 15th day of the eighth month of the traditional Japanese calendar; the waxing moon is celebrated on the 13th day of the ninth month. These days normally fall in September and October of the modern solar calendar.

Tsukimi traditions include displaying decorations made from Japanese pampas grass (susuki) and eating rice dumplings called Tsukimi dango in order to celebrate the beauty of the moon and  also implies a prayer for good harvest with their allusion to Japan’s premier member of grass family,Rice.Seasonal produce are also displayed as offerings to the moon.

So,

Here is our Tsukimi decoration:

And honestly for me Pampas grasses  viewing !!!is much more interesting! 🐾😸🐾

 

Here is Violet sketch as well:


Ah, Violet is calling me again and and telling me not to bite or touch pampas grasses!


Have a beautiful day, night dear friends and if you have full moon in the sky, make a wish and may all your wishes come true…..

Tanabata!

Hi everyone,

Blogging after one month again. I have many news about last month but before that I would like to tell you about today,   July 7th, Tanabata day(evening) in Japan !

Tanabata is a festival that is celebrated every year on July 7 . When this time of year comes around, people write their wishes on strips of paper and hang them on bamboo trees, along with decorations. 

Tanabata, also known as the “star festival”, according to a Chinese legend, the two stars Altair and Vega, which are usually separated from each other by the milky way, are able to meet. 

Each city or place has their own decoration for Tanabata. Here I had taken some photos from Hachimangu shrine, in Kamakura city. 

And here is our small bamboo 

“Waoo,Violet,

What is this tree?i love the sound of the leaves! Can I bite them?”

No, Malus,

You just make a wish and I will decorate it on the tree!😁

And here our little Tanabata bamboo tree with many wishes……

And a quick sketch of that!


My first wish on the top of the tree is  “World Peace,صلح در دنيا،世界平和 ” 

💫🌟Now, you my dear friend, make a wish or wishes tonight and may all your wishes come true!❤️💫🌟
