Today is a festival day called TANABATA.
TANABATA is one of the festivals which is annually held on July 7.
It is based a Chinese folk legend.
This is a story of lovers – ORIHIME(織姫) and HIKOBISHI(彦星).
ORIHIME is a weaver – she is also princess, and HIKOBISHI is a cowherd. They love each other but they can meet only once a year on this day because God separated them after they were getting lazier for their works.
In the sky, you can see two bright stars in this season – Vega and Alter.
Vega have been regarded as ORIHIME and Alter have been regarded as HIKOBOSHI.
They are separated by Milky Way like the story.
