Happy Penis Day??

I just now learned that March 15 is Penis Day in Japan!! The actual celebration is called Honen Matsuri, celebrated every March 15 in Komaki, 45 minutes north of Nagoya, Japan. The custom is related to bringing out a good harvest and having babies. THREE CHEERS TO RENEWAL AND FERTILITY!!













Why don't we have fun stuff like this around here??...I'm Just Sayin... Happy belated Penis Day!!

WOW! The Japanese are a lot more open minded than we are....I think I'm moving to Japan. I have a feeling they'd LOVE me there!!

Looks like a real hoot doesn't it?

WT,

Perhaps the fact that the date used is so close to St Patrick's Day, a holiday not to be trifled with, might have something to do with it. That being said, I don't suppose there would be anything wrong with considering an alternate date.

TH: That's probably the reason...I can't think of why else we wouldn't have that here...

Winky Twinky said...

Shawn said...

Hmm...I could be really into this idea...or really NOT into it. Depends on what the festivities consisted of.

Winky Twinky said...

Shawn: ...this is true...

I thought the US got into the play when DICK Cheney was in office.

Winky Twinky said...

LOL.... well, that's ONE way to look at it.... politics aside... he just might not have been willing to share... ba dum bump... Oooohhhh, bad rim shot...lol, sorry..... Thanks for visiting my blog... I will definitely return the favor...

Wow..I have been remiss at blog browsing this week - this'll teach me.

I need to book a flight...think what else we are probably missing.

Winky Twinky said...

It boggles the mind what we might be missing......Let me know what you find!!!

Roland Hansen said...

Gee, I thought there were lots of penal facilities here in the U.S. of A. Large ones, at that!

Judy said...

And here I thought Jimmy Durante had the biggest one, NOSE that is!

Winky Twinky said...

Roland: Yep, there are...but somehow not quite as fun sounding...

Judy: LOL, yeah quite a face decoration she has there, isn't it...

that lady has a penis on her face - to easy of a joke there. One of our favorite games is called the Penis game. It simply means who can yell Penis the loudest in the most awkward situations (weddings, speeches, church). I think it wouldn't have its edge in Japan.

That last picture says it all...there is nothing that the Japanese won't celebrate...although, from what I've heard, shouldn't their depictions of Japanese penises be much, much, much smaller?

Winky Twinky said...

OM: LOL...yeah, that's how *I* heard it!

Larew said...

It's now officially on my calendar so I'll remember to celebrate next year!
