Not snowing here, but all the stores are playing Christmas songs. Going shopping soon for the Christmas cake.

Here's a picture of our Christmas tree.

Very nice, looks almost real! :giggle:

Enjoy your Christmas sake.

PS: I have merged our Xmas threads into one.

Thanks. I did buy a few of them little cup sakes. Used to like sake, but I think as we get older sake takes on a negative effect, like dehydration. Anyway, hope everyone here enjoyed their Christmas . Yes, we bought the tradition Japanese Christmas cake. A whopping 3400 yen for it. Well, once a year its OK.

That's probably about what they cost here too. I've only bought birthday cakes from the Japanese bakery nearby but they are about $35. Expensive but great cakes. I don't think I've ever had a Christmas cake. It's not something my wife seems to care about.

No, Michigan. I only lived in Japan for 6 years. There happens to be a bakery owned/run by a Japanese lady nearby.
So we could have had a Christmas Cake if we wanted one.

I just asked her and my wife just said it is kind of sabishii without a Christmas cake. So maybe I'll surprise her and spring for one next year. It will be her 20th Christmas spent here.

Happy New Year everyone.
This is what we had to watch NHK with. By the way, NHK last night seem to have the cameras moving too fast. I had to quit watching it. Although I didn't feel dizzy, I felt it was annoying.
