In Japan, Christmas Eve is the main event for many Japanese. You see many workers hurrying out their office buildings to quickly meet up with others and there are many couples out on the street heading for dinner. It is also a time for eating chicken and having Christmas cake.
Christmas Day itself is not so special and if its a week day then most people will be heading for work as normal. I can’t remember ever having someone say to me “Merry Christmas” on Christmas Day although I have been wished it on Christmas Eve many times. Is it quite different in your part of the world?
I went out tonight to do some late Christmas shopping. You can guess where from the photos ^^. I quickly snapped a few shots of Tokyo Kokusai Forum’s illuminations which were looking rather warm and inviting.
What are you doing this Christmas Eve?
