This festival is also celebrated in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macau as the Duanwu Festivalor Duen Ng Festival. It was generally for boys but was changed to include both genders. Sekku means a season’s festival. Tango no Sekku marks the beginning of summer or the rainy season. Tango no Sekku was known as Boys' Day also known as Feast of Banners while Girl’s Day was celebrated on March 3.
