Hawaii has a lot of Asian influence, Japanese being a huge one. Every year on March 3rd, we celebrate Girl’s Day. I was at Shirokiya the other day (without my camera. Boo.), admiring all the Girls’ Day fanfare they had going on.
I love cultural celebrations of any kind (you should see me on St. Patrick’s Day, and I’m not even Irish). My girls are half Japanese, so I try celebrate in our home. I haven’t gone real traditional and actually bought them a doll (maybe one day), but I do get them a little gift to celebrate their heritage. The great thing about Hawaii is that you don’t have to be Japanese celebrate. Heck. You don’t even have to be a girl ; )
