Today, Tuesday March 3, is a day to celebrate little girls and to wish them hope and protection.
In Japan, today is the day that elaborate displays of precious dolls are created….
Paper dolls symbolizing things that are unhappy are placed into boats and set afire, to take away the unhappiness…
And, little girls are invited to have marvelous teaparties with their friends and their dolls.
I wish I had known about this when my daughter was little, because we would have teapartied heartily!
It’s never too late to have a happy childhood, so I say:
Get out your dolls and have a teaparty!
Make some paper dolls that symbolize some kind of unhappiness that you are ready to let go of, and then burn ’em.
I am going to celebrate by sharing a picture of one of the new dolls that is in my just about to be released book:
