Shichi-Go-San is a rite of passage for girls of three (san) and seven (chichi) years and boys of three (san) and five (go) years.  The tradition is said to have originated in the Heian Period amongst the nobles and over time passed to the samurai class.  By the Edo Period (1603-1868), the rite was adopted by the commoners and included the ritual of visiting a shrine or temple to pray for the children's wellbeing, health, and growth.  

At the service, prayers are offered and the fire ritual is conducted.  Children are blessed, receive amulet/talisman, and presented stick candy.  This is also a "day for pictures."  Children come dressed in kimonos or Sunday attire*.
