Kawaii Kids #19 - Chinese Solstice

I've made a few attempts at multiculturalism on this blog.  I like to think I am respectful & thoughtful about the cultures I represent, but there's always a hesitation that I just won't "get" it.  Today is one of those dolls.

I know that the solstices are important to most cultures around the world in some way and, although today isn't yet the solstice, I thought that would be a good theme.  I chose China and created some Chinese winter outfits.  The Chinese celebrate the Dongzhi Festival, which focuses on balance and harmony -- two things I'm always attempting to attain! 

I'm pretty happy with them and might try to do another solstice doll or two in the coming days.
