Girl's Day in Japan....Our First Celebration!

Monday, March 3rd was Japan's annual Girl's Day celebration. We have know about this special day for some time now via multiple viewings of the Food Networks "Iron Chef" program.

This year, the girls were able to experience this celebration first hand. Their fellow Arlington Heights Community Concert Band member, percussionist Taka, gifted Mollie and Tess with this a confectionery which is made only during the Girl's Day time of the year.
