Carpe Diem – Chooyoo – Chrysanthemum Festival

For Carpe Diem’s Chrysanthemum Festival, celebrated on the 9th day of the 9th month.

Both my parents and one of my sisters were born in October. Neither here nor there, and only interesting to me. Though what’s more interesting is that my mother’s favorite flower was the chrysanthemum. Makes you wonder, doesn’t it? I doubt she had any knowledge of the Japanese festival. Though she certainly would have enjoyed it!
