Japan loves Christmas too but the whole country does not seem to close down on the 25th the way it does back home.
For the first 9 years here I worked on Christmas day just like most Japanese people do however, for the last two years, I’ve taken the day off.
I’m sure many Japanese children received play station 3 “PS3” and more software for their Nitendo DS light.
When I was a kid we had bats and balls to play with. Lots of physical activity and as a result, most of us were in pretty good shape.
It’s amazing to see 15 to 20 kids all sitting around playing their Nitendo video games while eating junk food here in Japan. It does not seem like the best way to spend a childhood.
