I think what you suggested to your friend is great and right!!!
Hinamatsuri is on March 3rd. This is girl's day.
The family who has a girl has Hinamatsuri set.
The dolls are decrated on the 8 steps.(lookes like 8 staires covered by
red table cloth. ) :)
The top has grrom and bride. The time setting is old,old time. The costume
is emperor or rich family's wedding.
Second step(I do not know the good way to say it) has theee maides.
The other steps has soldiers and also the other one has five musicians.
(Sorry, I can not remember which one goes to 3rd or 4th step)
The rest of the steps has all the things the bride brought to the new home.
The restaurant my husband works has this set already displayed.
He said (The superball is over!) that he will look and let me know
The set can be cost from $2,000 to

If you have any questions, please let me know.
By the way, the boy's day is May 5 th. This is called boy's day and is
Hinamaturi is not national holiday!!!!!!
As a joke, we call April 4th as a new-half's day.(We call the people who has

a "special surgery" to become opposite sex, expecailly becoming female from
male,"New half")
