Tanabata Decorations

Today was the Earth Live concerts. There were concerts all over the world to call attention to taking care of the earth. Concerts were held on every continent. A concert was held in Japan, too.

Today was also tanabata in Japan. It is a day when wishes are hung on branches of bamboo. Eyes turn to the skies at night to see two bright stars. Click on the link below for the story at Kids Web Japan. To see last year's tanabata decorations, click on the label below.

Usually, the decorations are made of paper. Aunt chose shiny paper this year. Fortunately, we recycle almost everything.
