Today is the third day of the third month. In Japan, today is Hinamatsuri, or Girl's Day. It is a doll festival.

Update: Found the song that goes with it:

(There are better versions out there, but this one was embeddable. Also, WOW is imeem's embedded player shitty)

Here are the lyrics (via):

Here is a Hinamatsuri song called "Ureshii Hinamatsuri (Happy Hinamatsuri)."

Akari o tsukemashou bonbori ni
明かりをつけましょう ぼんぼりに
Ohana o agemashou momo no hana
お花をあげましょう 桃の花
Go-nin bayashi no fue taiko
五人ばやしの 笛太鼓
Kyo wa tanoshii Hinamatsuri

Let's light the lanterns
Let's set peach flowers
Five court musicians are playing flutes and drums
Today is a joyful Dolls' Festival
