On this slightly rainy Saturday Christmas morning, I wandered around the streets of Tokyo to enjoy the Christmas mood. As I walked at a somewhat empty street, I spotted a snowman faithfully standing outside a bar, welcoming guests to enter the premise. It seemingly extended its arms with huge welcome with a huge smile. That was a great gesture, I thought, as I briefly stared at the snowman.
Out of curiosity, I tried touching its body to confirm that it’s snow, and indeed it was. I snapped this photo at around 11 a.m., and the surrounding temperature was near to 10 C, which was relatively warm. I can’t help but to wonder how long will this snowman last before it melted.
My friends online and in Japan had celebrated this occasion in their own ways as well, and so do I, as I assembled a small table of feast that I bought from a local supermarket in front of the television as I munched away while watching Die Hard.
The Christmas season came and gone so fast that I didn’t properly enjoy the atmosphere as much as I would, but I digress. I look forward to the heavily decorated shopping malls and supermarkets with Christmas ornaments, Christmas songs, and of course, the next Christmas occasion.
I wish you, dear reader, had a wonderful Christmas yesterday, and hope it had brought you some joy. May the last week and days before the end of 2021 be good and memorable to all of you!
From the bottom of my heart, I wish you a Merry Christmas, whereever you are. Hope you and your loved ones are safe from the affected disaster areas, and wish you have a wonderful year-end holiday too.
