For those of you who attended YAK! today you know that today is Tanabata. The YAK! teens celebrated Tanabata just like the Japanese do, we wrote our names on slips of paper and then a wish to be granted. This holiday celebrates the reunion of deities Orihime and Hikoboshi represented by the start Vega and Altair who are separated by the milky way. These lovers are only allowed to reunite once a year on the 7th day of the 7th lunar month. The day of Tanabata changes ever year. The teens hung their wishes in the library garden, if the wishes blow away it means that their wish will be granted.
Here is the list of future dates
