Tanabata ( Star Festival )

July 7th is the day of Tanabata ( the Star Festival )
On the day, many people write their wishes on strips of colorful paper and hang them from bamboo branches. The students did, too.

The event became popular during the Edo period (1603-1867).

They are very interested in this event.

Two lovers separated by the Milky Way meet each other only once a year on this day.

New students wrote only Katakana and Hiragana.

Maybe he wrote many things on strips.

What did they write ?

I want to buy a car , to get lots of money , to marry a rich man , to pass the exam
to speak Japanese fluently , etc,.   What do you want to write ?
