Today (July 7) is Tanabata in Japan.
Tanabata (七夕, meaning “Evening of the seventh”), also known as the Star Festival, is a Japanese festival originating from the Chinese Qixi Festival. It 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.
This video, made in 2014, introduces this festival (commentary is in English), and PSH’s Japanese fans have created these visuals to celebrate Tanabata.
