Girls Day Gathering

girls day gathering

In Japan, families & friends gather to honor girls by displaying dolls & eating special cherry blossom mochi. After many years I decided to put up the Japanese dolls that my grandmother gave me as a child. I created a new annual Girls’ Day tradition by blending Japanese & American traditions. I gathered an intergenerational diverse community of friends to celebrate girls. They brought their dolls and favorite foods to share. We spend the afternoon reminiscing about our childhoods and making dolls
