Today March 3rd is Girl's day, Hina-matsuri (ひな祭り), In Japan.

Hina-matsuri (ひな祭り) is an annual event of the seasonal festival to pray for the healthy growth of girls.
Hina (ひな) means a Chick or small and lovely.

We display Hina-dolls,
representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants, and musicians
in traditional court dress of the Heian period
(794 to 1185) on a special shelve called Hina-dana to cerebrate the festival.
enjoy eating special dishes ;  Chirashi Sushi ちらし寿司 (Scattered Sushi, vinegared rice topped with thin strips of egg, pieces of raw fish, vegetables and many other ingridients - It is a homemade cooking for happy occasions.), Hishi-Mochi (菱餅) (multicolored rice cakes) and Hina-Arare (Crispy sweet snack) and drinking shirozake (sweet sake).
Hina-matsuri was also named Momo no sekku (peach festival)  because the festival by the old calendar was held during the time when peach trees blossomed. Hina-matsuri is said to be originated from a pretending-game of
daughters of the nobles in Heian Period (794 to 1185), to play with a model of imperial palace and decorations.
