Happy BOYS DAY!
Tango no Sekku....
Today is BOYS DAY.....now called children's day but growing up in Hawaii we used to celebrate this day as boys day... I used to love flying the carps outside on a pole. I remember going around the neighborhoods and loving it. You could see how many boys were in each house according to the carps flying in the wind at each household. Its a tradition I have kept. Today we have 3 outside flying about..One for me and one for my hubby and one for our dog Alika.... Happy boys day to all...

Love this watercolor too...You can see Diamond Head in Waikiki in the background....

Never heard of it too. It should be an international thing! Thanks for sharing the news! I love the "carps" thing.
