a present for us?????

Really long time no post--^^

I can see Christmas decorations and illumination everywhere in Japan, too. I feel these decorations and illumination are showy more and more every year. Mmm..., Japanese really know why people celebrate Christmas? I think Japanese just love festival^^;; However it's interesting to see Japanese fickle scenery^^

Anyway, it's a present for us from a depertment xD

What a cute! A department in Shibuya, Tokyo is decorated XD!!

Also, I went a lecture the day I took this picture. On Dec 1, We had a 25th anniversary commemorative ceremony of International Political Economic Department in Aoyama Gakuin University, and an ex-preminer, Mr.Nakasone, came to our university to lecture. The contents was difficult, however, I think it's good to be able to meet such a famous people^^

Please take care not to catch a cold--^^

Hello, Ai, how nice to see you posting on your blog again! I think for many Americans, Christmas is not a religious holiday at all but an orgy of conspicuous consumption. A couple of years ago, we decided to stop buying presents for everyone at Christmas. It's much less stressful! Now we just get some gifts for the kids. We also stopped getting a Christmas tree. I never liked the idea of cutting down a living tree just so we could put it in the living room for a few weeks, anyway.

Can you make it to the chat next week?

Hi AI!! A happy new year----!!^^
In winter, many buildings are decolated so cute and I love watching them too. I wish I had participated in the ceremony!

Happy New Year Ai! In France there were a good amount of Christmas lights as well but apparently that is the fashion here now and it wasn't that way before.
