Christmas in Japan is a very understated affair, most people here don't have any attachment to it or nostalgia for it, so it's pretty much a novelty, I didn't realize how much I loved Christmas until coming to a place that didn't... As much as I miss the New England snow, seasonal food and holiday spirit, I miss my family even more. They are 7500 miles away!! Yeesh.
But we did FaceTime today and that was pretty fun, and grabbing Indian dinner with my in-laws was also pretty great. Makes me appreciate this season all the more.
We were chewing here, so don't mind the funny expressions...
Good food, family and classic video games, doesn't get much better than that.
