hi all ,
Surprised
I want to thank sensei 8)amani8) for reminding me of it ....



Teru teru bōzu Japanese "shiny-shiny Buddhist priest" is a little traditional hand-made doll made of white paper or cloth that farmers began hanging outside of their window by a string This is supposed to have magical powers to bring good weather and to stop or prevent a rainy day.
"Teru" is a Japanese verb which describes sunshine, and a "bōzu" is a Buddhist monk (compare the word bonze), or in modern slang, "bald-headed."
Teru teru bōzu : became popular during the Edo period among urban dwellers whose children would make them the day before the good weather was desired and chant "Fine-weather priest, please let the weather be good tomorrow."
Today, children make teru-teru-bōzu out of tissue paperor and string and hang them from a window to wish for sunny weather, often before a school picnic day.
Hanging it upside down - with its head pointing downside - acts like a prayer for rain. They are still a very common sight in Japan, although there is no scientific evidence that they work Suspect .
