What is boy’s day? Also known as children’s day, Boy’s Day is a Japanese holiday that takes place on May 5th. It is a day set aside to respect children’s personalities and to celebrate their happiness.
On Boy’s Day (or Children’s Day), families raise the carp shaped wind-socks also known as koinobori. Koinobori are flown on a pole with one carp for the father, one for the mother, and one carp for each child.
Here I taped one koinobori to each pencil to give to the boy’s in 3rd grade. I will make these “colorable” koi available as a free download soon.
