I have no idea about Daylight Savings Time in Japan so I'm sorry I can't answer your question Ditto-san Hopefully someone else can! All I know is that Daylight savings time happens on my birthday so my birthday is going to wind up having 23 hours which is so not fair

March 3rd is Hinamatsuri (雛祭)

I learned a bit from this: http://www.japanesepod101.com/2015/03/03/mustknow-japanese-holiday-words-8-girls-festival/
I'm not sure if that link is freely available.

And you can celebrate Hina Matsuri with the Kantai Collection girls... by beating up Hoppo and taking her mochi.

Maybe best to just look up O-Bon (お盆). I only know peripheral little details about it as it's a major event on the Japanese calendar, and it pops up in various capacities in anime (like another major set of holidays, Golden Week) so one can't help but to at least have heard about it.

So, November 3rd is Culture Day.

I guess it should be time to watch one of those school anime now.

It is almost Xmas, which means fried chicken and cake decorated with strawberries.

So, my friends and I were talking about this over the weekend. None of us could remember why the fried chicken.

It was actually because in the seventies Kentucky fried chicken ran a very successful campaign to associate Xmas with their food.
