くま、ひな壇に乗る Kuma gets on a tiered platform for Hinamatsuri


Hinamatsuriひなまつり。女の子の日です。
Hinamatsuri (also called Doll’s Day or Girls’ Day) is a special day in Japan. Hinamatsuri is celebrated each year on March 3. A tiered platform covered with a red carpet is used to display a set of ornamental dolls representing the Emperor, Empress, attendants and musicians in traditional court dress of the Heian period.

3月3日は、クラスの大多数がお休みでした。きっと、みんな、ひな壇に乗っていたんだろうなあ。くまが、もし、ひな壇に並ぶなら、三色餅の隣がいい。1色ずつ、3日かけて、こっそり食べていく。もしくは、おひな様の後ろに隠れて、二人羽織をやる。
Most of my classmates were absent from school on 3rd March. They certainly may have got on tiered platforms. If I sit in a line on a tiered platform, I prefer the position next to a tricolour rice cake. I will eat one colour a day by stealth for 3 days. Otherwise I will hide behind a doll and I will perform a Japanese traditional performance called Helping Hands (I will put my arms in the sleeves of the dress of the doll and I will try feed the doll).

南インドには、ひな祭りに似た人形を飾るお祭りがありますが、ヒンドゥー教の祭りナヴラートリの間に行うもので、意味合いはひな祭りとは違うようです。世界中の女の子のための伝統的なお祝いの日を調べましたが、女の子の日はありませんでした(こどもの日はたくさんありました)。
I found a similar doll display festival celebrated in Southern India. However the festival is held during a Hindu festival (Navratri) and the implication seems different from Hinamatsuri. I searched other traditional festive days for girls around the world. Actually I have not found such days for girls (but many days for children).
