Originally, Christmas is an event that was brought from Western culture, and so it’s just like a shopping event in this country. You can see that Christmas is not even a holiday here. We have to work on that day! 😆
I always see how people change from Christmas to new year with cold smile. After playing Christmas songs over and over again anywhere, any shops in the city since 1st of November to 25th of December until I feel that was way toooooo much, sales clerks’ wearing Santa costume without any hesitation, and people rush to buy “Christmas cake”…
I know that they totally behave as if nothing happened on the very next day of Christmas and change decorations to new-year one. I’m kinda person who may be interested in left-over Christmas cakes, meaning where they are going. Christmas cakes being available after Christmas should value nothing. I’d buy some for discount! 😆
Anyway, this change does change the air; from Western ways of decoration with Christmas songs in English to Japanese ways of decoration with Japanese new-year songs.
I thought I can finally have a good volume of time to maintain my blog, but what happened to me was, somehow it takes too much time these days for each action in the web. When I click to leave a comment in other blogs, I have to wait for a minute or more to have the screen opened. When I try to open another site in another tab, it takes a few minutes to have them visible. That’s so stressful and I just cannot live with that any longer! So I think I have to clean up inside the laptop in this holiday season… 😦
Holiday must be something fun, but as I get old, holiday is a time to concentrate on the task that I cannot do usually. I need a break. I know. I’ll take a trip in west Japan around the end January which I think I can report in the related page of this blog. 🙂
