Happy Hinamatsuri!

Today, March 3rd, is Hinamatsuri or Girl's Day in Japan. This holiday is sometimes called the Doll Festival. So bake some chi chi dango mochi, drink some green tea and be glad you are a girl!!

Update: I just came across an interesting article on Hina Dolls written by John Marshall. These are the dolls displayed during Hinamatsuri.
