The Star Festival in Hakodate, Part2

When it was in the afternoon on July 7th, I cooked curry and rice for supper earlier than usual to have it after 20:00. And then I took a big box of snack bags, a book, a radio and the decorated bamboo to the entrance. And as soon as I put the decorated bamboo in front of the door at 17:50, a group of four girls came to my house.
After that I was waiting for children reading a book and listening to the radio at the entrance.
When the snacks had run out, I put away the decorated bamboo soon. After all 55 children came to my house by 19:30.
I had a good time, too.

My son got these snacks, some cans of juice, a purse, rubber balls, some playing cards, a small candle and so on.

Wonderful custom

Hi, the star festival in Hakodate is so interesting!
I had never heard about the custom.
But it's similar to "trick or treat" as you say, isn't it?
I guess children had wonderful time.
Thanks for sharing the good story!!

Re: Wonderful custom

Hello, mittan.
Thank you for visiting my blog and your nice comment.
I didn't know about the custom before living in Hakodate, too.
I hope it lasts forever.
By the way, thank you very much about the "英語ファン" blog. I found it. It seems that it went out of ブログ村. I had been looking for only inside there.
And I will write about studying English of me before long. Don't miss it!
