Together with House-Husband, Part 1, Chapter 43 – Doll Festival

“Hm? What are you doing?”
“Decorations for the Doll Festival! Eh heh heh! Isn’t it cute?”
“It’s an event just for girls. I guess Archer can’t help not knowing, heh heh.”
“Hmph. But the Doll’s Festival isn’t particularly limited to girls, you know.”
“Huh? Really?”
“Yep. Basically, (points at dolls) these are sacrifices too. Originally, the dolls took on the impurities and misfortunes and were cast into the river. They were also called by the name of Nagashi-Bina.”
“May our children be healthy, may they be free of illness and ailment… Those kinds of wishes were the origin of the Doll’s Festival.”
“Ooh… The dolls are going to get tossed in the river for us?”
“These days the dolls are part of a dowry. Parents wishing for their children’s health and safety in their travels let them have them and then send them off. It’s the love of a parent separated but still anxious about their child to ward off all the disasters along the child’s way. You two don’t need to toss them until you get married.”
“It’s like with the teru teru bouzu… They accept a whole lot of feelings from different people… It must hard for dolls too…”
“…Heh. If you think so, take care of them. They’ll protect you.”
“Yeah!” “Yes!”
