Jommy posted two pictures this week of Boromir, and Boro-gerbil and Fara-ham celebrating at the Lantern festival.

I asked:I know there is a festival that falls around the time of my birthday, but I have forgotten - Is it Obon? It celebrates ancestors and heritage?

And Jommy wrote back: Yes. It is the Bon (Lantern) Festival. We make the model of a horse from an eggplant or a cucumber. Ancestor's souls ride on the horse and come back to the house.

And she drew a picture of Denethor on the eggplant horse, and Boromir on the cucumber riding home to visit Faramir!!

Put down your drink, and run right over to see it.
