Christmas Is In the Air
Hello everyone. Christmas is on the air, and for the first time in several years I’m feeling the Christmas spirit. For one thing, I have several year-end parties (忘年会) to go to, which gives me a celebratory, festive feeling. Also, I’m enjoying the Christmas lights in Odori park and throughout the downtown area. It makes the dark of winter much more cheerful:)
This year I am going to roast a turkey with my family. I was able to reserve one at Mitsukoshi Department Store. We’ll have all the trimmings as well: stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce-even pumpkin pie! It will be a lot of work, but it’s worth it. I haven’t had a Christmas dinner in four years, since I came to Japan, so I’m really looking forward to it!
I hope you can get into the Christmas spirit as well!
