July 7th (or August 7th in Sendai) is the Tanabata or Star Festival, in Japan.
It is a really nice festival with a lovely story about it. The festival is about the gods Orihime and Hikoboshi who were loves but forced to separate and and a river was made to go between them. They are only allowed to see eachother one day a year and this day is the festival of Tanabata.
The gods are represented by the stars Vega and Altair and the river is the milky way and so this why the festival is known as the star festival.
People write their wishes for the year on colorful small strips of papers called tanzaku and hang them on trees with other beautiful traditional paper decorations decorations. They are really very pretty ! ! ! Of course there are processions and usually fireworks and it is really nice time. Normally I celebrate this festival in Sendai where it is on the 7th August.
