On May 4th there is a holiday called Midorino hi ( みどりの日 ) called Greenery Day.Before being designated Greenery Day, May 4 was a national holiday already simply because it fell between two other holidays: Constitution Day (May 3) and Children’s Day (May 5). (In Japan, a day between two holidays automatically becomes a holiday.) Add Showa Day (which replaced Greenery Day on April 29), and Japan has four holidays during a seven-day period known as “Golden Week.”  People in Japan like to go to a vacation and I will tell you one more day that I like. It is called Children’s Day (May 5). I like this day because I am child! In Japan I put 鯉のぼり(koinobori) (It is a staff with carp on it for Children’s Day.) It means the carp are going up the river

⬇ This is koinobori

And we also eat some good snacks like kasiwamochi !

And sometimes boys wear the hat called kabuto

Personal Response: I chose this article because I didn’t know there are current events in World Book Online. So I looked for the articles that are interesting and I found the article about Greenery day.
