Mainen, sangatsu no mikka, Nihon de Hinamatsuri ga arimasu. (Eigo no namae wa "Doll Festival" aruiwa "Girls' Day" desu). Nihon no kazoku wa tana o tateru, soshite hina o noseru. Hina wa O-dairi-sama [Emperor], O-hina-sama [Empress] to kyuutei no hito desu.

Kono peeji o yomimashoo ka?

Hinamatsuri to tomoni umeno hanaga sakunode totsuzen haruno youni kanjiraremasu. Seiyou (tokuni Hokubei) dewa [haru] ha shumbun kara hajimarimasuga, Nippon de futsuuha 3 gatsu 1 nichi wo haruno hajimaru hito saremasu. Kotoshino fuyuwa samukattanode haruno tourainiha yorokobashiiomoiga saresudeshou.

ひな祭りとともに梅の花が咲くので突然春のように感じられます。 西洋(特に北米)では「春」は春分から始まりますが、日本で普通は三月一日を春の始まる日とされます。 今年の冬は寒かったので春の到来は喜ばしい思いがされるでしょう。

(Whew, it took me 20 minutes to write this little paragraph and get it right.)

A very good question this one is. I began attempting at writing a reply in Japanese but my brain cannot easily process the convoluted run-on sentence into a rudimentary sentence structure of another language.

Anyway, back to your question: (1) Is there significance in celebrating a "girls' day" in a world that is entirely feminine? (2) If yes, would it be either a generic "children's day" for all children at certain age, or would there be a separate one for chelani and another for melini?

I am aware of the existence of festivals similar to girls' days or hinamatsuri in many parts of the New Cairen Empire. They are observed as a rite of passage, perhaps somewhat more akin to the celebration of 七五三 (shichigosan) in Japan. In Quirinelle, visitors may think of it like a first communion of some sort. Either way, it is a joyous occasion.
