Japanese Traditional Rite of Passage For Kids

Journal Entry: Sat Nov 30, 2013, 4:32 PM
Hello everyone!

Do you know Shichi-Go-San ( 七五三, seven-five-three ), a traditional rite of passage and festival day in Japan?
We celebrate the growth and well-being of our children, when the boy being 3 or 5 years, and girls being 3 or 7 years.
Usually we worship the Shinto shrine on the rearest weekend of November 15th.
Last year we celebrate our son for being 5 years, and this year our daughter for being 3 years.
