Christmas in Japan

Christmas in Japan

It has been a long time since I last updated this blog…
How have you been?

Last week I went to Seoul,Korea and Korea was so cold that I caught a cold…

The long-range forecast says it will be a mild winter in this year in Japan.
It’s good news for me!

Christmas will come soon.
Many streets and buildings are decorated with lights during the Christmas season in Japan.

In Japan, Christmas is like a festival not sacred event.
And Unmarried people spend time with their friends or lovers rather than with their family.

Some couples stay luxurious hotels or enjoy meal at a gorgeous restaurant,
and exchange gifts. The most popular gift is “jewelry”. (especially pair jewelry!)
Christmas is important event for Japanese especially couples.

I will spend time with my husband on Christmas Eve 24th Dec.
On 25th Dec. I will enjoy christmas with my friends!

There are two Important Christmas food for Japanese.
One is cake. another is chicken!
Some people buy luxurious cakes at department or hotels more than JPY3000!!
Then we eat chicken especially Kentucky Fried Chicken!
My father cannot eat chicken so when I was a child,
I couldn’t eat Kentucky fried chicken even in Christmas…

In Japan, Christmas is celebrated on the 24th.
Originally Christmas is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ,
but Christmas Day is not a national holiday in Japan.

This is unique custom in Japan.
