Christmas in Japan

Christmas in Japan…feels like nothing but still something. You go to work as usual, just after a holiday in the middle of the week to celebrate the emperors birthday. My collegues had told me that they usually try to finish their work early so they can go home to their familys, yet I was the only person leaving on time. There are a lot of illuminations in Tokyo at the moment. Not all of them are just for Christmas, some are just to celebrate the year, but most of them seem to be. They are everywhere, some are more pompous than others and can even give some kind of show to it. What about the food then? Well, like I already mentioned the common rule seems to be to take your girlfriend to KFC. We tried that, but the queues where a bit too long. The funny thing is that there was something similar to KFC on the other side of the street, where they also sold fried chicken. Their employees where shouting with their best throats in order to get some customers, but it was for no use. For us it all ended with McDonalds. Merry Christmas!
