七夕祭り star crossed lovers will meet again

Badia Cupcake - Yukata, Obi - 七夕祭り star crossed lovers will meet again

We had a party to celebrate the Tanabata star crossed lover festival that the Japanese have every July. This festival celebrates the meeting of the deities Orihime and Hikoboshi (represented by the stars Vega and Altair respectively). According to legend, the Milky Way separates these lovers, and they are allowed to meet only once a year on the seventh day of the seventh lunar month of the lunisolar calendar. The date of Tanabata varies by region of the country, but the first festivities begin on July 7 of the Gregorian calendar. The celebration is held at various days between July and August.

(from en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tanabata).
