|traditional bridal kimono|
So, if you look up into the evening sky on July 7 and it is clear, you can see the two stars reunited. But if it is rainy or cloudy, know that they will try to meet again next year. Some children will even make teru teru bozu てるてる坊主 to wish for good weather such that the lovers will meet again!
The story is told a little different in Japan (Aug 6-8) and includes each year to write wishes on colorful papers and display them on bamboo trees. Because of that, the streets are decorated very beautifully and people wear their traditional kimono.
What would you wish for?
