978 to go!

There is an ancient Japanese legend that states anyone who folds a 1000 paper cranes in one year will be granted a wish from the Gods. Some believe this grants you with eternal luck, a wish or recovery from an illness/injury.

Cranes and dragons and other mythical creatures are believed to live for thousands of years, hence 1000 cranes (Senbazuru).

I’m not saying you have to make 1000 cranes! But origami is a really fun past time and with a bit of practice it can become addictive and therapeutic.

Have fun folding,
