〜Dolls Festival Day in the old calendar 今日まで飾れる〜

Today falls on March 3rdthe Dolls Festival day, in the old, lunar calendar.  It is customary to stop displaying the hina dolls on this date.  And many people in Japan follow this rule according to the new calendar, however, I always displayed them until March 3rd in the lunar calendar, so I can enjoy decorating them over a long period.  These days, however, I don’t decorate the dolls but instead, every year I display this lovely designed paper scroll with a haiku of Dolls Festival day until March 3rd in the old calendar.

今日は旧暦の3月3日で上巳の節句。旧暦3月3日まで飾れば一番長い間飾れると考えて、私は毎年、このとても可愛い意匠に仕立ててもらったひな祭りの俳句の掛け軸をその期間、旧暦の上巳の節句まで飾ることにしています。
