MYO’S SPECIAL CELEBRATION
I believe everybody likes to celebrate. In Japan children enjoy different celebrations. They can get together on these days and have a lot of fun.
But there are also special days for Japanese children – their birthdays when they are 3, 5 and 7. At this age there is a special celebration called Shichi-Go-San (Seven-five-three in Japanese). Yesterday I celebrated my seventh birthday and it was such an unforgettable day!
I got up early and my mum presented me with a new beautiful kimono. I put it on and looked into the mirror. My granny said, “You look so nice in it! Now you are quite a big girl”. I was happy to hear that.
So, all my family members went to shrine*. There were many people there. Children got special sweets. After that we went home.
When I was coming up to our house, I saw many red and yellow balloons on the door. Then I heard the voices of my friends. They were waiting for me in the sitting room. I opened the door and they cried, “Surprise, Myo! Happy Birthday!” And our party began.
We ate a tasty meal, played computer games, danced and sang. My dad organized interesting competitions for my guests and we took part in them gladly. I liked “Magic Box” competition best: he, who finds a magic box, gets a nice present inside. So, all my friends got something to remember my birthday. It’s fun, isn’t it?
* shrine – храм у Японії.
