Shichi-Go-San: A Shinto Celebration
A Time to Remember Children

Shichi-go-san is a Shinto holiday, celebrated in Japan. It means, literally, “Seven-Five-Three”. Children of seven, five, and three years of age will travel with their parents to Shrines to pray for long, prosperous lives.

This is a special time to reflect on the world’s children; they are extremely important, as they will be the thinkers and doers of tomorrow. The better they are raised, the more successful we will be in the future. They are our most precious resource. November 15th is Shichi-go-san, so let us say prayers for our children. Let us take time to remember the innocence of childhood, how precious that time is. Let us pray that it is spoiled for no child. No matter which faith you are, please take the time to reflect on these ideas, and maybe say a prayer for the well-being of all of our children.
