On this day Japanese families celebrate Tango-no-Sekku, the Boys' Festival. With its special customs and observances, it is Japan's way of celebrating the healthy growth and development of her young boys. We clebrate this holiday along with girls day now that we live in Hawaii. it is a big deal at their school and the boys came home with lots of traditional Japanese treats including kakai mochi and other things we have grown used to. So go love your boys today! As a side not when I first heard of this holiday I thought it was a joke. It was not untill I had all of these wonderful goodies and treats brought to me on March 3rd (Girls Day) that I realized there really was such a thing as Girls Day and Boys Day.
