Tanabata it is the 7th day of the 7th month and is called the star festival . It is the reuniting of lovers Orihime and Hikoboshi or the stars Vega and Altair separated all but for one night a year by the Milky Way.
It is also custom to write wishes on coloured strips of paper called Tanzaku and hang them on bamboo .
This was my display last year
This is this years display
It is also custom to eat somen noodles on this day as they are said to represent the Milky Way.
This is a chilled somen salad with cucumber and carrot stars and a citrus dressing
I also made some yuzu flavour star shape cookies to celebrate
