« Christmas | Main | Holidays »


Three-day weekend. :) The 23rd of this month is Emperor's Birthday (Tenno Tanjobi). I guess a lot of people will have Christmas parties on the day, or "Bonenkai" (Forget-the-year party). It would be funny -- If Emperor's Birthday happened to fall on the 24th or 25th, how would Japanese people celebrate the day? Celebrating his birthday with Christmas cake, singing Christmas songs? Well, for most of us, it's just one of the National Holidays we enjoy. We would thank him for making Christmas a holiday.

Since my entries are hard to categorize, I've added a "Search" feature on this page. I did it for my own good, but am glad if it could be of some help to you as well.


Happy Holiday!
