The 7-5-3- Festival in the thirteen day of the Month of the Dragon, celebrated the children of the Empire. All five-year-old boys and seven- or three-year-old girls went to a shrine to be blessed. Because these numbers were considered unlucky, these children might be most vulnerable to evil spirits. The children dressed in their finest clothing for the occasion, and their families wore white veils over their faces. After visiting the shrine, it was considered lucky to buy chitose-ame, 'thousand-year candy', so that the ancestors of the last thousand years would be included in the rite. [1] [2]

Boar Clan Edit

The Boar scrupulously observed the 7-5-3 festival, since they were all too conscious of the dangers of the mountains, and sickness frequently took away the weakest children. [3]
