Hina-matsuri - the girl's festival is over

The 3rd March is Hina-matsuri, the girl's festival day in Japan. Not the national holiday but many families, and often groups display the Hina dolls in private houses, sometimes in the parks or other public places. And today I and mother put our hina dolls into the boxes and then into the closet again. In some areas in Japan it's the custom to put the seasonal displays back soon after the festival, also we want to use our tatami room for tomorrow. So we put the dolls away, and it made me feel that we are going to have the real spring from now!
