According to Wikipedia, Thousand origami cranes is a group of one thousand origami paper cranes held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by a crane, such as long life or recovery from illness or injury. In Japan, it is commonly said that folding 1000 paper origami cranes makes a person’s wish come true. Our bride Julia had help from friends to fold and string her 1000 cranes. We hung them from branches above the shark tank room at the NC Aquarium on Roanoke Island.
