These ducks are dressed better than us! 

Butchy and Moko, the elegant pet ducks of Japan, get dressed in Kimonos and head off to the shrine "Naki-Iegamo Jinja" for "Shichigosan". 

Duck owners, RyuzoArts clarified in the description, "Shichigosan is the festival for children who are 3, 5 and 7 years-old. We pray their health and growth in shrines." (What about 4 and 6 year old's? Are they excluded from the festivities? Seems odd... punny, no?)

Butchy is dressed in the black Hakama, and Moko in a pink kimono with a ribbon.  

Don't they look adorable?

The weather is starting to get quite chilly, so it's time to whip out the futons and snuggle up under blankets!

Just like Maru, the cat, is doing in this video. We take it that it must be really warm and comfy in that futon... any chance we can squeeze in and cuddle with you?
