Her Big Day

The shichigosan (7-5-3) event is on Nov 15th, but people generally celebrate it on any nearby weekend that has good weather. Last weekend I saw a lot of people celebrating it.

Ages 3, 5, and 7 are considered lucky, so when boys are 3 or 5 and girls are 3 or 7 they dress up in fancy kimonos and head off to the shrine. It’s a very colorful event and always a fun one to watch.
