The Tanabata Star Festival is an incredibly popular festival in Japan and this year it’s made its way to orkut as well. Although many celebrations now take place inJuly and early August, traditionally the festival has been celebrated on the 7th day of the 7th month of the lunar calendar year (which was actually yesterday, August 16th).
During the festival, you can see colorful fabrics in the streets and large bamboopoles decorated with paper ornaments symbolizing the stars. Orkut made its own ornament just for itself and wanted to share it with you.
Orkut specially designed |OrkutDoodle| for Tanabata festival 2010.
Folkloric performances, like Taiko drumming, dancing and concerts are all a part of what makes the festival so special.
