Tanabata Greetings

Tomorrow is Tanabata – the Japanese star festival. Legend says that Orihime (Star Vega) and Hikoboshi (Star Altair) are lovers separated by the Milky Way and only allowed to meet once a year, on the seventh day of the seventh month.Write your wishes on strips of colored paper (tanzaku) and hang them on bamboo branches.

I hope all our wishes come true ;)
