Even though I had to work Christmas eve and day, I could still celebrate in a small way. This is a sweet made of colored sweet bean paste from a shop in Toyohashi.
There’s an interesting illumination display in the shopping center next to Kanayama station.
I’m not sure what the theme is per say, but I imagine that it might be fantasy or something similar.
Regardless, it’s rather unique and incredibly beautiful when lit up at night. In the day, it’s a bit…
Well, you judge for yourself.
Working on Christmas wasn’t too bad this year. On Christmas Eve my coworkers and I had a lovely lunch of chicken, pizza and salad. On Christmas Day, another coworker brought in some cake for everyone to enjoy. When I lived in the States, I couldn’t imagine working on Christmas Day, but after living abroad and by myself for a few years, I really don’t mind.

Oasis 21 has these pretty lights above their outdoor skating rink.
On the way home from work yesterday, I walked by a flowershop selling pointsettias. They were brilliant colored and available in a small size, so I picked one up. It’s been placed on my dresser for the time being, until I finish cleaning off my living room table. After that, all that will be left will be to give it a name. Any suggestions?
