Hanamatsuri Greetings!

Tomorrow marks the celebration of Lord Buddha’s birthday, by modern Japanese reckoning. You may also hear this holiday referred to as Hanamatsuri (花祭) or “Flower Festival.” Here’s a nice Hanamatsuri post from a Seattle blogger. Not knowing the typical greetings for this holiday, I’ve invented my own below.

If you happen to know of a customary Hanamatsuri greeting—or if you have a fun alternative—I’d love to hear from you. You can learn a little more about the holiday here.

  1. Thanks for the kind nod. I have yet to hear a "greeting" myself on the subject in English or any language. :)
