Tanabata (たなばた)

Tanabata falls on July 7th! Tanabata is a day that celebrates the legend of star-crossed lovers Orihime and Hikoboshi, who are separated by the Milky Way and permitted to meet only once a year. As part of Tanabata traditions we write our wishes on strips of paper and tie them to branches of bamboo. What’s your Tanabata wish?
