Tanabata Festival – July 2013

Children celebrating Tanabata Festival at Kool Kids child care centre

In Japan, people decorate bamboo branches with paper strips and ornaments to celebrate Tanabata Festival on the 7th of July. It is believed that a wish comes true if you write your wish on the paper strips and hang them on the bamboo.

All of the children at Kool Kids made a wish, too. A girl wished for everything pink and a boy wished for a robot. Another girl wanted to be a princess and another boy wanted to be a fire fighter.
