Tune of the Day: Ureshii Hinamatsuri

aka “Happy Doll Festival”

In Japan, the third day of March of every year is celebrated as the day of Hinamatsuri, also known as Doll Festival or Girls' Day. This festival is held to pray for a girl's happiness and continued good health as she grows into a beautiful woman. It was also traditionally held to pray for a girl's quick marriage into a good family.

There is a song for the day called “Ureshii Hinamatsuri” (“Happy Doll Festival”), and in Japan it is played almost constantly from about February to March 3rd.
