An ancient Japanese legend that says that anyone who makes one thousand cranes will be granted a wish. In Japan cranes are holy creatures. It is said that cranes live up to one thousand years which is the reason for making one thousand cranes. Cranes are typically given as gifts to family and friends. Usually, Japanese couples make one thousand crane to for happiness and prosperity. I will embark on this challenge and will keep you all posted on the number of cranes I have made so far on each post I create.
