敬老の日 (keiro no hi): respect-for-the-aged day

Hari ini cuti umum di sini. Cuti sempena menghormati orang tua dan amat sesuai dengan suasana semasa di sini kerana jumlah orang tua atau umur lebih dari 65 tahun (tahun pencen di sini) adalah semakin bertambah setiap tahun. Golongan inilah yang telah menaikkan negara ini selepas kalah semasa perang dunia ke-2. Negara dari padang jarak padang tekukur telah bertukar kepada kuasa ekonomi dunia dengan kerajinan dan usaha tanpa mengaku kalah (akiramenai shikou). Ini ada sedikit penerangan mengenai Keiro no hi dari wiki.

Respect-for-the-Aged Day
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Respect-for-the-Aged Day (敬老の日, Keirō no hi) is a Japanese holiday celebrated annually to honor elderly citizens.[citation needed] A national holiday since 1966, this used to be held on September 15. Beginning in 2003, Respect for the Aged Day is held on the third Monday of September. In 2008, the holiday was held on September 15, 2008.

This national holiday traces its origins to 1947, when Nomatanimura (now Yachiyocho), Hyōgo Prefecture proclaimed September 15 Old Folks’ Day (Toshiyori no Hi). Its popularity spread nationwide, and in 1966 it took its present name and status. Annually, Japanese media take the opportunity to feature the elderly, reporting on the population and highlighting the oldest people in the country.

Doa Ramadhan:

Hari Kelima Belas

“Ya Allah limpahkan rezeki kepada ku berupa ketaatan orang yang khusyuk. Lapangkan dada ku dengan taubat orang yang menyesal, dengan keamanan Mu wahai keamanan orang yang takut.”
