Festivus

So you don't have a hangover today? Hope you all had a great Christmas.

Most of the Japanese are, including me, supposed-to-be Buddhists and Shintoists, but actually not that religious. Christmas Day is not even a holiday here. Nevertheless, we enjoy Christmas. We look forward to Christmas. I dream of a white Christmas, and wish the snow would vanish away right after that. Christmas is the day of cake, gifts, and parties. And I like it. It's not bad to have something to celebrate. No wonder Santa Claus even comes to Buddhist preschools.

Oh, and the image on my last entry was the one I borrowed from Tyon. I wish I had a talent for painting.

Today is my "仕事納め," shigoto osame, or the last work day of the year. Just one last push. Phew.

Update: Seems like celebrating Chiristmas with KFC, well, not KEC, has become popular here. (thanks to den4)
