Merry Christmas from The Japan Guy

The Christmas Tree at MOG Shopping Mall

‘Tis the season: the season for gingerbread houses, the season for apple cider and hot cocoa, the season for family and friends, the season for church services, the season for last minute Christmas shopping, the season for mistletoe, the season for caring, the season…if you’re lucky…for snow, tis the season to be…jolly.

I want to wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas all the way from Japan. Unfortunately, it’s not a holiday here (they do have Christmas trees and lights though) so I’ll be teaching, but I’m not sad. I want nothing more than to eat mom’s Christmas molasses cookies, but it just means I have to do it when I visit home next time. Truthfully, I do get a little homesick over the holidays, but it’s more longing than sadness. I am so grateful to have a roof over my head, clothes on my back, a job to go to everyday…and not everyone can say that (my heart goes out to those people)…so I won’t complain about something petty things. To all of you who are reading this, and are able, please eat some extra gingerbread for me :)

I won’t post a much today, since I need to call my family, but I wanted to just show you a short video of the “Blue Ocean Illumination” show that I went to late last year. I hope you enjoy it.

To your best Christmas Ever!!
