July 7th ~ The Star Festival ~
July 7th is the day of Tanabata, the Star Festival.
The event was introduced into Japan in the 8th century and became popular during the Edo Period.
This is the only day in a year when a pair of lovers, stars separated by the Milky Way, can see each other.
It is said that the event is a combination of Chinese tradition with beliefs peculiar to Japan. So, now on the day of Tanabata, people in Japan write their wishes on strips of colorful paper and hang them from bamboo branches.
Here at Trinity office, we do not have bamboo branches, so we hang our wishes from a foliage plant.
Let's see what our wishes are...
Want to have everything I want!
No more working over time :'(
World Peace :)
What are your wishes?
