My wife and I visited my coworker's house to have Mexican Christmas dinner yesterday. She and her husband are really good at cooking and we always enjoy their food. This time, we could get a chance to have Mexican food.
We are happy to see their pleasant faces to have presents from us, culinary books. I was surprised and very pleased to have a stylish scarf from them.
She said it is weird to have a Christmas party before 25th like 24th and 23th, and from 25th on, the atmosphere is totally changed into New Year prep season in Japan, selling like Shime-Kazari. She said "It is 25th that we should celebrate the Christmas!" She is absolutely true. Well, you know, Japan is a funny country.
