Hinamatsuri: March 3, 2008


d0114908_9571335.jpgToday is Hinamatsuri day and in the morning circle we asked questions like "What day is it today?", "What do they eat and drink on this day?" and "How do the girls dress?".

After this we moved onto the tea ceremony and the kids sang the Hinamatsuri song and then Mrs. Miura and her two assistants helped to make some delicious tea.

Julian also dressed in his ceremonial gown and helped serve the tea.

Everyone that was involved with the ceremony enjoyed it immensely.

Firstly we ate some very sweet candy from Kyoto and then drank the tea which is a little bitter. The sweetness of the candy made it almost impossible to notice the bitterness of the tea and then after this we ate another piece of candy to counteract the bitterness again.

I am sure everyone felt refreshed and reinvigorated after drinking the Green tea.

After lunch we made a Hinamatsuri calendar for the month of March and the Kinders and Rompers did a great job of assembling the different pieces of the dolls and sticking them onto the paper.
