Today is March 3rd which means it is hina matsuri (お雛祭り)in Japan. That is Japanese Doll Festival according to Wikipedia, but it is basically the day when girls get to celebrate their special dolls that are kinda scary looking and really expensive. Well I am sure there is a proper tradition and purpose, I just don’t know it. Anyway, baby Nyla couldn’t care less at this point although she was better behaved with them than I expected. We only have two, the emperor and empress I guess, and this is the empress. Tonight she goes back in her box for another 360 days or so until next year…
