Children’s Day!

Today is Children’s Day!

It is a day to respect children’s personalities and to celebrate their happiness! It is a national holiday since 1948, and it marks the end of the Golden Week holiday period.

In this day, there is the custom of hanging carp-shaped wind socks/flags which represent the family (black carp – father; red carp – mother; blue carp – son).

I took the picture above on a beautiful morning when I went running!
